Kevin Wong (minor)
Class of 2020
Kevin is a fourth year student in the Double Degree Programme with Law, as well as a prospective Literature Major. Having grown up immersed in fantasy books, film, video games, and television. the Literature Major affords him a welcome opportunity to study language and the stories that people tell with it. He particularly enjoys grand tales of gods and heroes; of the rise and fall of empires; of the individual situated against the overwhelming forces of time, culture, and history.
Hoping to bring together both Law and Literature in his capstone project next year, Kevin has tentative plans to explore Ovidian epic and poetry for its legalistic valences in its coverage of mythological ‘property disputes’, with implications for classical rhetoric, the pseudo-legal status of the Roman gods, the concept of ownership, and fundamental ideas about natural justice.
Kevin has plans to pursue graduate school in the legal humanities, with an research interest on the intersection between legal, literary, and classical studies.
Outside of classes, he spends his time gaming, reading, and watching television – all preferably with a cup of bubble tea in hand.
