Bill Hamlett

Graduate Student


Bill Hamlett holds a masters in literary theory from the École Normale Supérieure and maintains an active translation practice. While his research is anchored in contemporary philosophy and 20th century critical theory, his interests extend to classical reception, peace and conflict studies, queer theory, and translation practices in diverse historical contexts from early modern Europe to the African independences. His dissertation project explores tensions between textual materialities and materialist methods in Montaigne's Essais and their translations, internal and external.
