Alfie Howard


I joined the University of Leeds as an undergraduate in 2017, undertaking my BA with the School of Politics and International Relations. After graduating in 2020, I began an MA by Research with the School of English.

Research interests

My thesis examines the wendigo, a malevolent spirit in traditional Algonquian belief systems, and its representations in literature and popular culture, looking at the works of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous storytellers.
