Claire L. Lynch <email@example.com>
My research examines the way people write about their own lives, from traditional novels and autobiographies, to contemporary blogs and websites. Focusing on British and Irish authors from the turn of the last century onwards, I am particularly interested in the literature of the working class and representations of childhood and youth.
