I've started up a blog and revived the twitter feed (@OxLifeWriting) for OCLW. The blog is designed as an informal counterpart to the official OCLW website: a forum for discussion of themes and ideas relevant to life-writing; anecdotes and experiences; exchange of material in progress; information about forthcoming events; reviews of past events, books, articles, TV and radio etc; podcasts.
Please do have a look around and any feedback would be extremely welcome (I'm a blogging novice, so would love any suggestions!).
I've also set up a discussion board on Yahoo Groups for lengthier conversations about life-writing.
If you have an interest in life-writing, you may like to visit the webpages of OCLW's friends:

Professor Mark Casson (University of Reading) and Professor Marc Ventresca (Wolfson College, Oxford) Social scientists study phenomena in which people play a fundamental role: the economy, law, the internet, Brexit, and so on. People can generally do whatever they like, and so their behaviour is not governed by rules in the same way as the phenomena studied by physicists and chemists. Given this, what kinds of questions can social scientists answer, and how do they do it?Networking16 - 16Jan JanScience Table DinnerTuesday 16 January -6:30pm to 7:30pm
