Roger Irwin

Linacre Huntington Exchange Fellowship

Tuesday 8th November 2016

Linacre student, Roger Irwin, has just returned from a Leeds Hoban Huntington Exchange Fellowship. Researching Evelyn Waugh’s letters, journals and manuscripts held at the Huntington Library, California, Roger accessed many primary resources for his DPhil thesis on the politics of Waugh’s writing and, in particular, on his war novels and travel writing.

This Exchange Fellowship, which lasts one month, is made possible by the generosity of Old Member, Lydia Leeds Hoban (1971) and Patrick Hoban.
