We are officially launching the project tomorrow, Friday 26th January 2018, at King’s College London.
Although this is the project ‘launch’, work started last June and we are already close to the end of the “survey” phase of the project. We decided to wait until now for the official launch so that most of the project team could be involved (our second PhD student, Raffaella, only started in January) and also so that we could use the launch event as an opportunity to showcase some of what we have found. There will be a rolling slide show throughout the event of over 100 manuscript images (from the many thousands we have taken so far). There will also be poster displays about the project, and short talks by the PI, Victoria Moul, as well as two senior members of the advisory board. Some KCL students who have studied with Victoria and are working on research projects on neo-Latin poetry at different stages (BA, MA and PhD) will also be presenting their work. We will post a description of the event and hopefully some photographs next week!
