Dr. Benjamin Sherlock

My name is Ben and I come to China from Scotland. 


I have experience tutoring both groups and individuals at both college and at university levels where I have taught courses in Communication, Media, English, Journalism, Research Methodology, Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature. Since becoming TEFL qualified I have undertaken a full academic year’s work teaching second language learners during the English element of their access year to a university in Dammam, KSA. 


Before moving into teaching I studied for several years in the UK ultimately completing my PhD in Modern Thought offering a comparative theoretical treatment of the event of laughter. Starting from my original interest in literature I have subsequently developed my thought in a more interdisciplinary mode. I have conducted studies within the disciplines of literary studies, historical and cultural studies, philosophy, psychology, theology, critical thought and aesthetics. The scope of my thesis demanded reference to a speculative tradition stretching from Socrates to the present day and traced by way of thinkers including Freud, Bataille, Kierkegaard, Kant, Koestler, Bergson, Plessner and Hegel while also encompassing more literary responses from writers such as Baudelaire, Dante, Leopardi and Wyndham Lewis.


My first degree was an MA in English which I studied at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. I then continued my research in a similar vein while also attempting to broaden the scope of my thought. I undertook two M.Litt Degrees in 'Irish & Scottish Studies' and in 'Comparative Literature & Thought' and also a postgraduate diploma in 'Information & Library Studies' before completing my doctoral thesis in 2012. I have been teaching since then in a variety of positions including both college and university levels and ranging from more theoretical and cultural investigations, to literary analyses and finally into more dedicated language training.

I am looking forward to finding out what China will offer up as the next chapter of my story...
