P21 – Oliver Hancock

Having completed a BA in English Literature and an MA in 20th Century Literature, Oliver Hancock received the Miriam Allott award in 2017 to undertake a PhD at the University of Liverpool. His research concerns the presentation of children in the literature of postmodernism; he hopes thereby to update the already sizeable body of work on the literary child of other contexts. Like many of these studies, he is particularly interested in how the literary presentation of children tessellates with contemporaneous issues surrounding children, childhood and child culture.
