Opportunity to join Book History editorial team as co-editor 

Due to the impending retirement of Beth le Roux, we are seeking a new editor to join the team to take responsibility for scholarship from and about Australasia, Africa, and areas of the world beyond Europe and the Western Hemisphere. Immediately after being chosen, the newly hired editor will start work with Greg Barnhisel, Ph.D. (duq.edu) and Yuri Cowan (Yuri Cowan – NTNU), shadowing Beth  for issue 27.2 (Nov. 2024) before taking full responsibility for their remit.

Introducing Early Editions: Conversations with Emerging Researchers

In the absence of in-person conferences and networking opportunities due to COVID-19, SHARP News is pleased to present a new feature, Early Editions: Conversations with Emerging Researchers. Early Editions pairs an emerging researcher with an established SHARPist with similar interests and flips the script: through informal dialogue, the established scholar introduces the work and interests of the early-career researcher to the broader SHARP community. Our first conversation is between Joe Saunders, PhD student at the University of York, and Ian Gadd, Professor in English Literature at Bath Spa University.
