The School of English’s Scholarly Editing Research Theme brings together staff and students with an interest in scholarly editions and other related research projects. As a cross-period collaborative group with the aim of sharing technical expertise, good practice and resources, the Scholarly Editing Research Theme represents staff across other research groups in the School engaging in the practical and theoretical dimensions of editing. It hosts events throughout the semester for all who are interested, and is convened by Dr Harriet Archer.
