We are delighted to announce that the Modern Humanities Research Association has awarded the Hakluyt Project a Research Associateship for 2013-14. We will shortly be advertising a 0.5 one-year appointment and are hoping to recruit a candidate with expertise in editing Latin material. This is the second RA position awarded by the MHRA to the project in recent years, following the appointment of Colm MacCrossan in 2009-10. In addition, the Arts and Humanities Research Council has awarded the Hakluyt Project funding for a Research Network, which will enable us to online casino hold a series of Editorial Workshops for the editorial team of Volumes 1-4. These Editorial Workshops will be held in Southampton over the next two years, and we very much hope that they will provide the model for similar events in due course for editors working on later volumes in the edition.
The Hakluyt Edition Project held a second workshop for the editors of volumes 1-4 (as well as volume 6) in the series on 14-15 May at the University of Southampton. The event was supported by funding from the University of Southampton and the Irish Research Council. The workshop brought together volume editors and members of the editorial board to discuss samples of edited and annotated text, and was chaired by the general editors, Prof. Daniel Carey and Prof. Claire Jowitt.
The participants were Anna Agnarsdóttir, Michael Brennan, Angela Byrne, Ralph Cleminson, Nandini Das, Andrew Hadfield, Anders Ingram, Ladan Niayesh, Anthony Payne, Will Ryan, Sebastian Sobecki, and Felicity Stout.
