Starter catalogues

Opportunities for scholars, students, and research projects at EMLO

If you are a student in search of a topic for your thesis and are interested in working with early modern letters, you might like to be in touch as we have a number of ‘starter catalogues’ in progress in Early Modern Letters Online. Alternatively, you might be a more senior scholar with a particular expertise in one of these early modern figures. Or you might be a member of a research project team in the process of putting together an application for funding and find that the correspondence of one or more of these individuals is integral to your work. Should this be the case, we should be delighted to hear from you and to work with you moving forward.

In these catalogues listed below, metadata has been partially compiled, but significant work and further research is required to bring the inventory to completion.

Volunteering opportunities to work from modern print editions

If you are interested in collating metadata from published editions and would like to become a member of our growing community of volunteers, do be in touch to discuss possible involvement. We have a variety of early modern individuals whose correspondence we would like to list using a variety of print editions. You do not need previous experience of this sort of work and full training would be given, although of course previous knowledge of, and continued interest in, the early modern individual concerned would be a distinct advantage. We are a friendly group and we share a love of—and enthusiasm for—working with letters. We organize a number of informal pop-up talks by Oxford-resident and visiting scholars, and we meet regularly (at present virtually) over sandwiches or tea to discuss the issues we all face in our research and the fascinating nuggets that arise from it.
