Academic Director: Grant Connor

Grant is the Academic Director of the College and is based in the The Registry at 45 Pembroke Street.

He is a graduate of Magdalen College, the University of Oxford, where he studied Philosophy and Modern Languages (French).  Grant’s academic interests are varied, but he specialises in the literature and thought of the early modern and modern periods, with especial focus on the development in French literary form (cultivated, in part, over his time at l’Université de Paris-Sorbonne). As a linguist he naturally has a strong interest in translation theory, linguistics and stylistics in a formal academic setting.  An accomplished philosopher, Grant took his M.Phil. also from the University of Oxford specialising in pre- and post-structuralist French literary theory and criticism, during the 19th and 20th centuries.
