PhD and MA fellowships in medieval/early modern culture and digital
humanities

The Department of English at the University of Saskatchewan is inviting
applications for four-year PhD and one-year MA scholarships to work on the
following research projects:

* The Culture of Curiosity in England and Scotland, 1580-1700
* The John Donne Society's Digital Prose Project
* The Canterbury Tales Project
* The Textual Communities Project
* The Medieval Codes Project (http://medievalcodes.ca)

Applicants should propose a PhD thesis project related to some aspect of
these projects. Possible topics include, but are not restricted to:

* Literature and culture related to early modern collecting
* The textual tradition of the Canterbury Tales
* Theory and practice of scholarly editing in the digital age
* The effect of the digital revolution on our models of the humanities,
archives and the community
* Curiosity as a literary topos in such authors as Sidney, Shakespeare,
Donne, Browne, and Milton
* Digital humanities and scholarly editing/archival collections
* Science, curiosity, and religious devotion
* Rhetoric, language, and early modern collections

* Medieval manuscript layout and navigation

The successful candidate will join one of the textual studies teams at the
University of Saskatchewan, including The Digital Ark, the Canterbury Tales,

level of funding will depend on the quality of the candidate's application
and will include funding for travel and training (subject to budget
approval). Facility with Latin or a modern European language and advanced
skills in computing will be particularly valuable, but not essential.

Please follow the Department of English guidelines for application, which
