Founder and Director

Sisu Capital Limited

Dermot Coleman is the Founder and Director of Sisu Capital Limited. He received his DPhil in English from the University of Exeter in 2011. His doctoral thesis, Being Good With Money: Economic Bearings in George Eliot's Ethical and Social Thought, explored how Eliot's novels engage evolving economic thought of 19th century Britain. In particular, Coleman argues that Eliot's personal financial and material circumstances strongly influenced the way that Eliot wrote about economics in her novels. The book project developed from his thesis, titled George Eliot and Money: Economics, Ethics and Literature, was published by Cambridge University Press in June 2014.
