About Lou Selfridge (they/them)
I am a 2022 Scholar, currently reading English at the University of St Andrews. I have a particular interest in the study of poetry ranging from Middle English verse to the present day, looking at approaches to form and technique. Much of my current thinking surrounds approaches to metrical structuring and analysis in contemporary verse.
My Laidlaw research project looks at contemporary writing by LGBTQ+ poets who make use of the Scots language in their work, with a focus on how their use of the language can 'queer' its status.
