Event description

Description

This masterclass is aimed at postgraduate students and early career researchers at any Irish university who are interested in editing primary texts, be they historical documents, personal letters or literary texts.

Dr Paul Botley is Associate Professor at the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies, University of Warwick (UK). He is an experienced critical editor of early modern multilingual correspondences, including the correspondence of the classical scholar Isaac Casaubon (4 vols, 2018), translator of the King James Bible Richard 'Dutch' Thomson (2016), and the renaissance polymath Joseph Justus Scaliger (8 vols, 2012).

You will have the opportunity to hear from Dr Botley about the work of the critical editor and engage in a stimulating discussion. It is also a great occasion to meet students and early career scholars from various departments who share your interests.

If you are considering editing old texts, or would like to know more about what it takes to publish primary material, join Dr Botley and your colleagues at this session.

The masterclass is part of a one-day symposium about critical editing, including the launch of the The Correspondence of Isaac Casaubon in England, 1610–1614. For details about the symposim and to register for free, please visit: https://critical-editing.eventbrite.ie
