ProfileBronson Brown-deVost's interests are primarily philological in the broadest sense. He enjoys investigating the transmission of literary traditions across geography and through time. This involves everything from the employment of traditional literary forms within new contexts to the historical development of individual texts or works and even the evolutionary development of language itself.
