Successful Study Day for Sixth Formers

Dr Tricia Connell delivered a study day for AS Level English Literature students from the RSA Academy Arrow Vale. After a study session focused on The Great Gatsby, the students were able to talk to our Student Ambassadors about studying English at Worcester and explore our award-winning Hive Library. The event was, as one of the students noted, ‘extremely enjoyable and informative’. Please contact Dr Connell directly if your school is interested in running a similar event (Email:



PG Students attend BSECS conference

Two of our MRes Early Modern Studies students, Kirsty Driscoll and Ceri Fowler, and our new PhD student Lucy Cooper will attend the annual conference of the British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (BSECS) (4-6 January, St Hugh’s College, Oxford University). They will be accompanying their supervisor, Dr Andreas Mueller, who has recently been made a member of the BSECS Executive Committee. Kirsty and Ceri are in the process of completing their Masters theses on Restoration literature, while Lucy’s doctoral project is concerned with the contribution made by eighteenth-century Anglican clergymen to the formation of the English literary canon.
