Eden O’Brien

MEden O'Brian HeadshotLITT IN THEOLOGY AND THE ARTS STUDENT

Hometown: Toronto, Ontario.
Education: BA in Catholic Studies from Our Lady Seat of Wisdom College

Academic Interests
Since encountering literature through the critical lens of Plato’s aesthetics, Eden has been interested in studying how the arts use reality in order to reconcile the inherent unreality of imitation with artistic truth. By contextualizing popular artistic expressions within more traditional systems of thought, Eden hopes to realize the significance that art has to play in everyday formation. Furthermore, Eden is especially interested in the interplay between art and imitation with reference to Tolkien’s poetics, Aestheticism, and camp.

Other Interests
Eden likes to read and listen to music.
