Jennifer is an AHRC-funded D.Phil. student in English at University College, Oxford, supervised by Prof. Nicholas Halmi and Prof. Pamela Clemit. Her thesis examines William Godwin’s hitherto unacknowledged status as a major node in an intricate system of epistolary networks that spanned over five decades of the Romantic period (c.1778-1836). Specifically, it considers how – and in what ways – the private letter enabled Godwin to forge, sustain, develop, and often terminate relationships (both personal and professional) in a discursive, intellectually rigorous, pre-digital era.
