TORCH is home to a number of interdisciplinary Early Career Researchers, who are based at the Radcliffe Humanities building. Between them, they cover a fantastic range of research areas including life writing, the translation of Walter Scott, the history of philology in South Asia, the lexicography of Philippine English, the mass media and its technologies, the development of celebrity culture in the eighteenth century and imitation and deception in the natural world in science and literature of the long nineteenth century.
We caught up with some of our Early Career Researchers to find out more about their areas of expertise.
Lee-Von Kim is a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Autobiography and Comparative Perspective. She shares her research on the intersection between visual and verbal self representation including the fascinating writer and artist Claude Cahun whose experimental memoir uses photo montage alongside writing to explore her identity.
Céline Sabiron is a Junior Research Fellow in English. She shares her research on the question of limits and borders in Walter Scott's Scottish novels and the translation and domestication of his works into French language and culture.
Knowledge Exchange fellow Oliver Cox runs the Thames Valley Country House Partnership. He discusses how academics can best collaborate with country houses in the Oxford area. How can academics tell the stories that are the bread and butter of their research in a way that inspires, informs and entertains the public?
