Current Research Projects 

I am currently working on my PhD project, which is concerned with ideology and evaluative language in British historiography. The results obtained from analysing the data of the compiled Corpus of Late Modern Historical Writings are supposed to contribute to the large-scale research project “Register (r)evolutions? The development of British vernacular history writing from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle to the English Historical Review (c. 900-1900)”, which is supervised by Prof. Dr. Claudia Claridge.
