Emily Knight is a D.Phil candidate in History of Art at the University of Oxford supervised by Professor Hanneke Grootenboer. Her research focuses on posthumous portraiture in the late eighteenth to early nineteenth centuries in Britain, considering the ways in which these works became a language for mourning and commemoration. She completed her Masters in History of Art and Visual Culture at Oxford in 2012 and before that, studied for her undergraduate degree in the same subject at the University of Edinburgh. In addition to her research and role as TORCH Graduate Project Coordinator, she also runs RECSO (Romanticism and Eighteenth Century Research Oxford), a research network supported by TORCH.
