Nicholas Dunn-McAfee

Nicholas Dunn-McAfee is a doctoral researcher in History of Art and English Literature at the University of York. His doctorate—fully funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council—explores the picture-poem ‘double works of art’ of the major Victorian artist and writer Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–82).

His peer-reviewed criticism has been published in a number of journals — including The Journal of Pre Raphaelite Studies, Yellow Nineties 2.0, Vides, and Aspectus.

He is interested, broadly, in the relationship between British and Irish poetry and painting from Romanticism to the present and how visual-verbal forms enable us to say, think, or do things that could not otherwise be said, thought, or done.

Alongside his research he teaches both History of Art and English Literature at the University of York.
