SNLS Forum for Early-Career Researchers - 15 February 2019
The Society for Neo-Latin Studies is organising a one-day event for advanced PhD students and early-career researchers with an interest in Neo-Latin. The event will take place at UCL (106 Gordon House, 29 Gordon Square, Bloomsbury, London WC1H 0PP) on the 15th February 2019, and will focus on "career development". This will be an opportunity to discuss the implications and challenges of being an early-career researcher in such an interdisciplinary, non-traditional, and rapidly evolving field as neo-Latin, as well as the strategies and types of position open to scholars with a PhD in this area.
We will have a series of short talks on topics such as: postdoc applications and the postdoc experience, publishing, balancing research and teaching, applying for research grants and teaching jobs, and other career options. Our confirmed speakers include both early-career researchers and more senior academics, as well as former PhD students who are or have been working outside academia. There will be ample opportunity for questions and discussion.
Attendance is free of charge; lunch and coffee will be provided. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by the 31st January 2019.
The event is generously supported by the Institute of Classical Studies.
The Philip Ford Annual Postgraduate Day will place in Glasgow on April 2019 2019 (details to follow).
Project Announcement: Neo-Latin Poetry in English Manuscript Verse Miscellanies, c. 1550-1700.
The SNLS would like to draw your attention to the website for Dr Victoria Moul’s Leverhulme-funded research project: Neo-Latin Poetry in English Manuscript Verse Miscellanies, c. 1550-1700.
From the website:
"This project aims to survey for the first time the enormous quantity of neo-Latin verse preserved in early modern English manuscript sources. We hope to restore to scholarly visibility the ‘Latin dimension’ of the bilingual literary culture of sixteenth and seventeenth century England: a period in which Latin (not English) was an international language, and in which not only the reading but also the writing of Latin verse was a significant element in all secondary education."
The project is funded by the Leverhulme Trust over four years (2017-2021). The project lead and principal investigator is Dr Victoria Moul, Senior Lecturer in Latin Language and Literature at King’s College London.
The Society for Neo-Latin Studies has organised a one-day event to be held in Manchester next March to give postgraduate and post-doctoral researchers opportunities to discuss ideas, meet other scholars in the discipline, present papers on their current research, and to attend a special workshop on ‘Editing Neo-Latin Texts’ led by Prof. Sarah Knight. This will be the sixth in a successful series of meetings the Society has organised for researchers at relatively early stages of their careers.
