Ruby Guyatt


I began my university education by reading Theology at King's College London (2011-14), before completing the Philosophy of Religion MPhil here at Cambridge (2015-16). My MPhil dissertation on Kierkegaard and anxiety was awarded the Gregg Bury Prize, and is now forming the basis of my doctoral project. I am funded by a Levy-Plumb PhD Studentship, administered by Christ's College. 

Previously I held an Undergraduate Research Fellowship at the Cultural Institute, King's College London (2014), and worked at the National Theatre (2014-15). Last year I produced a series of podcasts to accompany 'Stations of the Cross: Art and Passion', an exhibition co-organised by the Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme.
