Metathesis is a collaborative forum for critical analysis and engaged, cross-disciplinary dialogue. While based in the Syracuse University Department of English and moderated by its graduate students, Metathesis extends its content beyond the confines of English studies narrowly defined.


T.J. West III is a Ph.D. Candidate in English. His dissertation focuses on the historico-biblical epic and representations of history.
