student, The University of Oxford
William is currently studying theology and religion at Regent’s Park College, Oxford, where he also currently serves as the JCR President. He is a keen Westminster-watcher, and has written political comment pieces on Brexit and its ramifications for British democracy for Oxford student newspaper Cherwell and for The Spectator’s ‘Coffee House’ online blog.
He is particularly interested in the place of liberty in society and the necessity of its preservation. Consequently, much of his degree has become focused on the Enlightenment period in both Britain and on the continent; the religious history of liberty leading up to the modern age and the Reformation’s part in this story; and the intersections and interactions of religion with liberalism, rationalism and science in the West.
