Renaissance Cultural Crossroads: An Analytical and Annotated
Catalogue of Translations, 1473-1640

*£27,183 pa
Fixed Term Contract for 11 months*

You will collaborate in the preparation of a web-based catalogue of all the translations into and out of all languages printed in Britain between 1473 and 1640, as well as those into English in the same period. The project is funded by and subject to the terms of a three-year Leverhulme Trust award, entitled Renaissance Cultural Crossroads: An Analytical and Annotated Catalogue of Translations, 1473-1640', made to Professor Brenda Hosington, Associate Fellow in the Centre. Catalogue entries, which now number over 6000, contain not only bibliographical data but also other information concerning (whenever possible) the translator, translation and source text. It is this supplementary data that will be entered in the third and final phase of research starting September 2009.

You will also participate in organising an international conference at the University of Warwick in May 2010 to mark the near completion of the project and assist in preparing the subsequent volume of essays.

There will also be opportunities for publishing sole-authored individual articles.

You will have a 2:1 or higher honours degree in the Humanities and a PhD or equivalent in one of the following disciplines: Renaissance Studies, History of the Book, Bibliography. You will have a developing research profile and the ability to produce high-quality publications. You will have a working knowledge of at least two foreign languages and basic computer skills (Microsoft Word, Excel, Sitebuilder or other web design). An interest in, or some knowledge of, Translation Studies would be an advantage.

For more information about the project, see Informal enquiries about the post may be addressed to the Director of the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance, Dr Ingrid De Smet ( ).

Interview date: *w/c 13 July 2009
