Todd is a PhD Candidate and Tutor in English literature at Flinders University. He is a recipient of the Australian Government Research Training Program (AGRTP) and participant in the Flinders 2018 Academic Internship Program for Doctoral Students (AIPDS). He completed a BA(Hons) with First Class Honours in art history at Charles Sturt University (2016), following from a BA in art history at Griffith University (2015).
His doctorate research examines the trope of the daimon in William Blake's epic poem Jerusalem: The Emanation of the Giant Albion from a literary-humanistic perspective. His broader research interests include Romanticism, eighteenth-century literature and philosophy (German and English), Weimar Classicism, literary humanism, and the philosophy of literature. He is particularly interested in the intellectual history that engages with concepts of the imagination and reality, and their interaction in relation to ideas of human genius, creativity, and cultural development.
