Dr. Jeremy Stewart’s first scholarly monograph, I, Daniel: An Illegitimate Reading of Jacques Derrida’s “Envois,” is forthcoming in fall 2024 from Peter Lang Verlag as part of the series New Comparative Criticism (Series Editor: Florian Mussgnug). He currently serves as Scholar-in-Residence at Regent College, a graduate theological school affiliated with the University of British Columbia. His research project relates to literary pilgrimage, love between readers and authors, and Vladimir Nabokov. Stewart is also a Veritas Scholar in the 2024-25 arts cohort led by mentor Mia Chung.

I, Daniel began as Stewart’s PhD thesis in English Literature, which was completed in 2023 at Lancaster University under the supervision of Professor John Schad. His research, funded by a SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship and a Lancaster FASS Studentship, involves a creative-critical hybrid project that considers Jacques Derrida’s “Envois” (from The Post Card) from the point of view of the Biblical figure of Daniel. Stewart’s external examiner was Jean-Michel Rabaté. In the course of these studies, he completed one-on-one tutorials with Professors Terry EagletonPaul Muldoon, and Benoît Peeters.

Stewart is a member of the Critical Poetics Research Group housed at Nottingham Trent University, and was a workshop participant in the 2020-21 Five Bodies series, jointly organized by the Critical Poetics Research Group and the Nottingham Contemporary Gallery. Workshop instructors for that series included Nisha Ramayya, James Goodwin, Johanna Hedva, Simone White, JR Carpenter, and Maureen McLane. He has also participated in creative writing workshops in 2020 with Yvonne Battle-Felton and Lars Iyer.

Stewart’s first peer-reviewed academic paper, “‘I Have Only Words to Play With!’: Riddling Lolita’s Logodaedaly,” was published in Nabokov Studies vol. 17 (2022).

His second peer-reviewed paper, entitled “Dreaming Los Angeles through Jacques Derrida’s ‘Envois,'” was published in Passage no. 2. (2022).

Stewart has acted as a peer reviewer for the scholarly journal Humanimalia (2021).
