Class of 2020
Kevin is a graduating student in the Law Double Degree Programme, as well as a Literature Major. Having grown up immersed in fantasy worlds made accessible through books and video games, studying literature affords him a welcome opportunity to examine the intricacies of text, language, and narrative that make up the fabric of those worlds. 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.
Bringing together both Law and Literature, Kevin’s final year project examines 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, and ancient roman ideas about property and ownership. He plans to pursue graduate school, performing interdisciplinary research at the intersection between legal, literary, classical, and reception studies.
Outside of class, he spends his time gaming, reading, and watching television shows – all preferably with a cup of bubble tea in hand.
