We are pleased to announce that Dr Rebecca Bullard has been awarded the Oxford Centre for Life-Writing Tony Gray Visiting Scholarship, 2017-18. Rebecca will join the community of OCLW Visiting Scholars at Wolfson College, Oxford, to work on her project: “Obituaries and New Media, 1700-1780.” Her project explores the emergence of the obituary as a popular genre in the 18th century and addresses the impact of gender, socio-economic and class status, geographical region and new media, such as periodicals and newspapers, on the structure and style of these texts. The research carried out during her time at OCLW will form part of Rebecca’s monograph, The Oxford History of Life-Writing, volume 3: The Eighteenth Century.
