Oxford Centre for Life-Writing

Welcome to the Oxford Centre for Life-Writing (OCLW). We are a research centre based at Wolfson College at the University of Oxford, designed to support those who write auto/biography and those who undertake research on different forms of life narratives.

OCLW was formally established in October 2010, with funding from the Dorset Foundation. Since its creation, we’ve built up a busy schedule of events (including talks and lectures, ‘in conversations’, seminars, workshops, conferences and symposia, and concerts. We hope that you can join us for one of our many events.
