The Manchester Centre for Correspondence Studies

We are pleased to announce that in this new academic year we are now the Manchester Centre for Correspondence Studies (MCCS).

Our application for Centre status to the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures (SALC) at the University was led by the inaugural co-directors,  Dr Douglas Field (English and American Studies) and Prof. Andrew Morrison (Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology), supported by the original lives of letters team, Dr Naomi Billingsley, Dr Florence Impens, Dr Katharina Keim, Dr Alice Marples and Oscar Seip (all current or former researchers at the John Rylands Research Institute).

They are now joined by core centre members Dr Marije van Hattum (Linguistic and English Language), Dr John Hodgson (John Rylands Library), Dr Roberta Mazza (Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology) and Dr Joanna Taylor (Digital Humanities), and a wider membership from SALC and beyond.

“Lives of Letters” will continue as the name of our event series, but we will be moving to a new MCCS website soon, where we’ll publish details of our members and activities for 2019-20.
