About + Contact

doonpress is run by Ryan Orr, a student from Kitchener, Ontario. I study History and Medieval Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University, and have grad school ambitions in the near future. I’m deeply interested in current affairs, the media, politics, and where we’re headed as a global society, while simultaneously fascinated by all the wonderfulness of the past. I hope that doonpress can start a conversation about those subjects through a mix of short opinion pieces, longer essays, and aggregated “recommended readings”.

You can check out another blog I contributed to, with content entirely from students at WLU. It’s all about “Game of Thrones”, medievalism, history, and media studies: check it out!



Feel free to contact me at r_orr@ymail.com. I welcome all feedback and would love to continue the conversation.
