About

This is a blog about my academic research–sort of.  I’m hoping it will be less about the subject of my work (at the moment the 18th-century letters between Elizabeth Montagu and William Pulteney, Earl of Bath) and more about my relationship to those letters and the process of reading them.  More generally, this blog engages with the issues raised by the reading of personal letters of all kinds; and even more generally with the larger field of life writing. I really hope that others working in the field of letters, diaries, and life writing will feel free to comment and converse and guest post from time to time.
