Manchester Centre for Correspondence Studies

The Manchester Centre for Correspondence Studies (MCCS) was founded in 2019, following two successful years of the Lives and Afterlives of Letters Network.

The MCCS team comprises colleagues from several established and emerging projects at the University of Manchester, including from the JRRI-funded Lives and Afterlives of Letters Network (2017-18).

MCCS will bring together around 30 specialists working with correspondence across historical periods, languages and cultures to promote best practice in correspondence studies. In 2018-19, the activities hosted by MCCS and other academic partners included seminars, training iniatives, and public-facing events relating to the study of correspondence.
