Meriel Patrick – Lecturer in Theology and Philosophy, Academic Standards Officer

MA (Oxon), MPhil (Oxon), DPhil (Oxon)

Dr Patrick studied for her MA, MPhil, and DPhil at St Hilda’s College, Oxford. Her research interests stretch from philosophy of mind through metaphysics and philosophy of religion to Christian doctrine: her doctoral thesis considered the nature of mind and the application of this concept to a number of doctrinal questions. Some of her more recent research has focused on the theology of C.S. Lewis, with articles appearing in The Journal of Inklings Studies and C.S. Lewis’s Perelandra (2013, eds. J. Wolfe and B. Wolfe). She has taught philosophy and theology for a number of colleges of the University of Oxford and for visiting student programmes. She also works in the Research Support Team at the University of Oxford’s IT Services, and as a Research Assistant for the Oxford English Dictionary.
