About Me

Hello. My name’s Gabriel.

I did my DPhil in Arthurian Literature at Oxford University 2010-2014.

I’ve taught undergraduates at the University of Oxford and at Advanced Studies in England, Bath. I’ve also given a paper to students at the University of Tehran.

I work in academic publishing, but in my spare time I write. My big project at the moment is a sci-fi novel set on Mars.

I co-founded (with Will Badger) and co-run (with three others) the Tolkien Lecture series at Pembroke College, Oxford. I am also the web-site guy for the Owen Barfield Literary Estate.

You can follow me on Twitter, where I tweet things about Mars, King Arthur, and biscuits.

Alternatively, send me an e-mail: gabrielschenk [at] gmail.com.

I look forward to hearing from you!
