Our staff work on major scholarly editing projects, ranging from editions of skaldic poetry to the prose works of Thomas Nashe and the poetry of Percy Bysshe Shelley. Such projects generate further scholarship, examining the contexts in which the works were produced, or looking at the practice of scholarly editing. We are committed to maintaining and developing our expertise in scholarly editing, experimenting with digital technologies, celebrating past publications and supporting new editorial projects.
The School is home to ‘Animating Texts at Newcastle University’ (AtNU), a three-year project working in partnership with the Digital Institute (NU), and the Institute for English Studies, London, to explore how the digital can complement rather than replace the print edition.
