As part of her British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship (1998-2001), Dr Rebekah Widdowfield has been examining media representations of homelessness and homeless people in the local, regional and national press. This has been a wide-ranging study examining the type of article, content, approach, language and, where possible, the use of photographs and other visual imagery.
Dr Yasmin Haskell held a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship between 1999 and 2002. Her book on Jesuit Latin didactic poetry is published by the British Academy in summer 2003. In the early modern period, the subjects of poems in the didactic genre were as multifarious as they were topical, including meteorology and magnetism, raising chickens and children, writing and conversation. Here Dr Haskell considers poems on the social and medicinal benefits of coffee and chocolate illustrating the particular perspective of Jesuit ideology.
