A New History of Authorship and Reading
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a Research Project Grant from the Leverhulme Trust to fund a new phase of miscellanies research, which will, amongst other things, create a unified database of poetic miscellanies from 1560-1780. The project begins in June 2014, and we will be advertising for a postdoctoral position at Easter.
