In January 2016 I became a co-investigator on: “The Emily Hobhouse Letters: South Africa in International Context, 1899-1926”. Funded by the AHRC, the project, a collaborative venture with Drs. Helen Dampier (Leeds Beckett University, and Rebecca Gill (Huddersfield), is piecing together the life and work of humanitarian reformer and pacifist Emily Hobhouse. In particular we are focusing on Hobhouse’s epistolary networks and her practical contribution to projects for international peace, relief and reconstruction.
