Seth Armstrong Twigg

Doctoral Researcher in Welsh industrial literature, Cardiff University

I am an AHRC-funded doctoral researcher, currently completing my thesis on Welsh industrial writing and the environment, under the supervision of Professor Katie Gramich at Cardiff University, and Dr Samantha Walton at Bath Spa University. My research specifically examines literary depictions of environmental degradation as a result of industrialisation in Wales, with a principle focus on coal mining and texts published in the 1930s.
