Brian Thomson (Bio)

Brian Thomson


Brian Thomson graduated with a BA in History from UBC and is currently pursuing his MA in Interdisciplinary Humanities. Though his name suggests purely Anglophone origins, Brian was raised in Chile, where he spoke Spanish until he was thirteen! With some experience helping friends with their papers, a little dabbling in some editing courses, and volunteering as an editor in the UBC Journal of Philosophical Enquiries, Brian is well prepared to help you in your writing assignments. (Anything covering the transition from the Medieval to the Modern world is very interesting to Brian, particularly if it relates to the history and philosophy of religion and or science.) His interests include advising a book club inspired by the Inklings, playing gigs with his band, and attempting some worldbuilding here and there.
