We learned of a call for applications for several travel bursaries for the conference “Decoding the Past: Critical Editions and Their Editors”. Here the call:
The Long Room Hub at Trinity College Dublin is hosting a two-day conference on critical
editions on 1-2 November 2019. Collaboration between senior academics and early career
researchers will focus on the techniques and methodologies involved in making critical editions,
editorial choices regarding transcription and translation, as well as the interactions of computer
science and web-hosting specialists with scholars in the digital humanities. This conference
centres on critical editions of medieval and early modern texts.
The Conference is offering Conference Bursaries funded by the Society for the Study of
Medieval Languages and Literature with a value of €50 for an attendee resident in Ireland
and €145 each for two attendees who will travel from Europe (or further).
We are particularly seeking applications from postgraduate students interested in the process of
making critical editions, especially with regard to ground-breaking research. For those interested,
please submit a one-page cover letter and a CV. The cover letter should include details of the
applicant’s research and interest in critical editions.
Please send applications for bursaries to email@example.com. The deadline for
applications is 1 August 2019. Awards will be announced in September.
