Author(s): Katherine Cooper
Publication: Ransom Center Magazine
Date: 1/11/2018
Abstract: Katherine Cooper is Senior Research Associate at the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing, University of East Anglia. Her fellowship at the Ransom Center was supported by an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Research Fellowship Endowment. In writing about her four-month fellowship researching the PEN archives, she concludes that "Just as the Ransom Center’s English PEN and PEN International archive is becoming more accessible, researchers are beginning to work on different areas of the organization’s history held in smaller archives and also basements, cupboards, and attics all over the world. Increased work on PEN is illuminating the key role this organization has played in the lives of individual writers and the fortunes of individual nations."
