Dr McLean’s Marsden Fund project focuses on the Porter family: historical novelists Jane and Anna Maria Porter and their brother the artist and traveller Sir Robert Ker Porter. He especially welcomes projects that focus on the Porters’ writings or associated topics: the historical novel; Romantic-era travel in Russia, Persia, or South America; the literary family as global network.
Interested students should write to Dr McLean:
with a brief introduction and a possible topic.
