Logan Quigley is a Ph.D. student specializing in medieval English literature. His research focuses on representations of cognition and community formation in medieval English texts, particularly as they extend to and are shaped by character communication. In past works, he has considered the interplay of speech acts in the work of the Gawain-poet and the importance of silence in Chaucer's House of Fame. Logan also harbors a deep interest in Tolkien's legendarium and hopes to incorporate this interest into future projects.
