Library of Congress award won by Lucy Fletcher

Congratulations to Lucy Fletcher, who was been awarded a prestigious Library of Congress Scholarship by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

The award provides generous funding for Lucy to spend three months, during the summer of 2013, to carry out research at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. She will be based at the John W. Kluge Center, which is located in the librarys Thomas Jefferson Building, and will have unparalleled access to the librarys collections. Lucy will use this time to study material not easily available in the UK (especially continential European scholarship), which is relevant to her AHRC-funded doctoral thesis on narrative in Plutarchs Lives.
