Anthony Grafton at the Cambridge Bibliographical Society

Last Wednesday (28 January) Anthony Grafton (Princeton University) and William Sherman (University of York) gave a joint paper at the Cambridge Bibliographical Society Seminar: “In the margins of Josephus: a tale of two readers”. More about this event here.

Later this week, we were fortunate to hold an informal meeting with Anthony Grafton – a great opportunity to discuss many aspects of the project!


Meeting with Debora Shuger

This morning we were very lucky to have Debora Shuger with us, talking about her work on Melanchthon and his notion of ‘genius’.

Debora Shuger (UCLA) is currently a Visiting Fellow at CRASSH, invited by the Crossroads project.

She will be one of the plenary speakers at the forthcoming conference Crossroads of Knowledge: Literature and Theology in Early Modern England (14 February, 2015). More details about this event here.

Workshop with Jonathan Hope

Organised by our colleagues at the Crossroads Project (Crossroads of Knowledge in Early Modern England: the Place of Literature), this workshop – lead by Jonathan Hope- has offered us an insight into current Digital Humanities projects that focus on words and languages, e.g. the Visualising English Print project.

Jonathan Hope is Professor of Literary Linguistics and member of Digital Humanities Research Group at the University of Strathclyde. You can read more about his work here.
