A passion for bringing English literature to the public has led to a Rhodes Scholarship for University of Queensland (UQ) student Damian Maher.

Damian began his academic studies at UQ with a degree in economics and art, before completing an honours degree in English literature.

“I started in economics and law, but realised that literature is my passion,” he said.

“At Oxford, I’ll be studying a Masters in modern and contemporary literature, and hope to follow that with a doctorate in literature.”
