Compelled by the thought that poetry can reflect and shape understanding of selfhood and relationship, Scott plans to study the central relationship between speaker and addressee(s) in Walt Whitman’s poem Song of Myself. Scott is particularly interested in how Whitman’s poem might interact with and illuminate the meanings of Christ’s command to love one’s neighbor as oneself, and how the reception of such an interaction might affect concepts of selfhood and relationship in American culture, both within and outside of the Church.
In his spare time, Scott still reads poetry and theology for their own sakes. He also enjoys hiking and running through beautiful Fife county. Scott is an avid drinker of both tea and coffee hopes to stumble to some level of cooking expertise while studying in St Andrews. As a side project, Scott likes to explore the theological insights of Quentin Tarantino’s masterwork, Pulp Fiction.
