Adam founded RECSO in early 2014, and directed the project in its first year as a TORCH Network. He continues to support the project, and is currently working on RECSO’s long-term financial plan as a part of the university, and consulting with other graduate groups who wish to set up similar period-specific networks.
Adam is a DPhil student of English, and his research explores the significance of colonial slavery in eighteenth-century labouring-class poetry, specifically as a means of interrogating ideas of identity and social politics within Britain. Adam has previously worked on the the Digital Miscellanies Index , held a fellowship at the Huntington Library, and following his doctorate he hopes to further pursue his interest in labouring-class epistolarity.
Adam is the Founder and Former Director of the RECSO Network.
