Starting out

945468_10151976712180979_2068226198_n Hello!

I am just starting out (five weeks in!) on my Ph.D researching the nineteenth century short story and the influence of the telegraph.  I’m AHRC funded as part of ‘Scrambled Messages: The Telegraphic Imaginary 1857-1900′, a joint project from King’s College, London, the Courtauld Institute of Art History, and UCL’s Institute of Making.  You can read more about the project here or join our facebook group and follow what we’re up to.  We tweet @ScrambledMsgs

I’ve been lucky enough to be part of the Language of Access training which is actively encouraging participants to blog – so here I am, wondering what I’ll think when I look back on this towards the end of my project.
