Dr Brian Edwards has been a teacher and scholar for many years, focusing on modern literatures, writing, psychology, and theatre. In 2007, he enrolled in a doctoral program at Northern Illinois University. His writing and thinking helped him win a university-wide award in 2012 as one of the five best dissertation proposals among a group in multiple disciplines. Dr Edwards completed his dissertation in 2013, a study of the novelist Graham Greene, titled “It’s a Battlefield: Manic Depression in Graham Greene’s Novels,” a ground-breaking study that describes and explains how bipolar disorder in Greene’s novels reflects the connection between creativity and his mood-affected mental illness. During his graduate studies and following the completion of his PhD, Dr Edwards published articles and reviews in such journals as Style and Interdisciplinary Studies. He is currently crafting a proposal for a second monograph on Graham Greene: 1950–1969, which will demonstrate the progressive nature of manic depression.
