Will’s first degree was in English at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and he took the M.Res in Renaissance and early modern studies at CELL during its residency at Queen Mary University of London. His AHRC-funded PhD, ‘Testimonies of affection and dispatches of intelligence: The letters of Anthony Bacon, 1558-1601’, also at Queen Mary, explored the ways in which secret agents made use of affective bonds to achieve personal and political objectives, and reveals the strategies these men adopted in a variety of early modern-specific locations including the Inns of Court, male-dominated aristocratic households and prisons.
