MemberLiesbeth Corens

I am a historian of mobility, travel, archives, commemoration, and the Catholic Reformation. My research uses the case of the dispersed English and Dutch Catholic minorities as a means to reconsider the geographical, thematic, and chronological confines of scholarship on the European Catholic Church in the early modern period. I have taught at the University of Cambridge, Queen Mary University of London, the University of Reading, Oxford Brookes, and the University of Oxford. I am also actively involved in organising conferences and seminars, primarily related to record keeping or about early modern Catholic history. I currently am the book reviews editor for British Catholic History, the preeminent journal for the history of Catholicism in Britain and Ireland published with Cambridge University Press.

I am currently studying for my doctorate at the University of Oxford. My dissertation explores eighteenth- and nineteenth-century adaptations of the ‘chronicle’ and the genre’s relevance to contemporary debates over memory and history, primarily in Scotland, during the long eighteenth century. I am also interested in the narrative techniques used by historical novelists to present their texts as historical artifacts, and the relationship invoked between author, narrator, and reader to cope with competing visions of the recent, often violent, past.
