Anja-Silvia Goeing's Bid Success with the British Academy/Leverhulme

A hearty congrats to Anja-Silvia Goeing (anniversary fellow in history, Northumbria University) for her recent British Academy/Leverhulme Small Grant bid success: "Worlds and Networks of Higher Learning: Modes of interaction between Universities, Academies and Schools, 1400-1750."  Anja is joined in the initiative by Glyn Parry (Roehampton), and Mordechai Feingold (CalTech).  More on the project:

This international collaborative project will bring together a working group, the members of which plan to produce over the next two years a volume scrutinising the nature and scope of higher learning and collaborative networks from the late Middle Ages to the era of Enlightenment. Our novel approach will consider topics that university historians have largely ignored: the intense collaboration between university scholars and instructors; printers and providers of teaching objects and tools; administrators and students at academies, independent colleges, gymnasiums and Latin schools. Contributing experts will include renowned scholars in late medieval and early modern school, academy, book and university history of England, the German lands, France, Italy, Spain and bordering countries. The group will write a book together, hold four workshops to present and discuss single book chapters for publication, publish the outcome, host an internet site, and will plan an extended working and funding programme for the following years.

The project starts in July 2015.
