Research Projects

The Oxford Centre for Life-Writing is very interested in participating in, or hosting, long-term research projects on a subject related to life-writing. 

If you are planning a research bid, and are interested in exploring opportunities for working with us as a project partner (possibly involving conferences held at OCLW, visiting scholarships or other research activities), please in the first instance email OCLW with a short paragraph (500 words max) describing the project, the type of input you envisage from OCLW, and the funding body to which you are applying. 

Current Partnerships 

OCLW is acting as a project partner to a research bid in development by John S. Bak at the Université de Lorraine, on 'Literary Journalism and War'. Professor Bak will be a Visiting Scholar at OCLW throughout the academic year 2014-15.
