Karis Riley received her PhD in English Literature from the University of York in 2017. Her thesis examined concepts of early modern emotion, reason, materialism, epistemology, and the moral body in seventeenth-century thinkers, with a particular focus on John Milton. The day after submitting her doctorate, she started the MSt in Classics at the University of Oxford. She is currently preparing her first book, Milton's Passions.
