Professor Ad Putter wins EU Horizon funding for doctoral training network on the early book
11 May 2022
€2.4 million awarded for Marie Słodowska-Curie Doctoral Network
The award will support a Marie Słodowska-Curie Doctoral Network that will train a new generation of medievalists across Europe in the history of the early book. The Doctoral Network Re-mediating the Early Book: Pasts and Futures will fund a cohort of doctoral researchers in six Universities (Bristol, Alicante, Vienna, Zürich, Antwerp, and NUI Galway).
Professional development and skills training will be provided by experts of the consortium, in collaboration with non-academic partners in a range of sectors that show the continuing importance and relevance of the early book in Europe today. These include publishing (Quaternio and Boydell and Brewer), heritage libraries (Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, Vlaamse Erfgoedbibliotheken), museums (National Print Museum and Klosterneuburg Museum), the antiquarian book trade (Maggs Bros. and Inlibris), and cultural events management (Cúirt International Festival of Literature).
The programme, which was awarded a grant of just over €2.4 million, will run for four years, 2023-2027.
