Dr Alex Belsey is interested in art and intrigued by the various ways in which we – in visual art, literature, film and pretty much all aspects of culture – imagine the world ending.
Alex works on literature, life-writing, and culture from the 19th century to present. He completed his PhD, on the journal of the British painter Keith Vaughan, in 2015 at King’s College London. He previously studied at Goldsmiths College, University of London.
