Reading and Editing Renaissance English Manuscripts II

Dr Chris Stamatakis (UCL)
Full day - from 10.00 to 17.00
Maximum: 15 students
Venue: Senate House Library

Day two of a two-day course

A class devoted to examining further examples of Renaissance English palaeography – secretary and mixed hands – and an opportunity for students to bring their own examples for discussion or analysis.  Aimed at students having attended day one of this course, although applications will be considered from others if they already have some basic fluency in reading early modern hands.  

Chris Stamatakis received a B.A. in 2004, an M.St. the following year (English Literature, 1550-1780), and in 2008 was awarded a D.Phil.

From 2009 to 2011, he held a Junior Research Fellowship at Lincoln College and was awarded a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship for a project entitled 'Denizened Wit: Tudor Reinventions of Italian Verse'. During this time, he also carried out research at the Huntington Library in San Marino, California, as a visiting fellow, before joining the Department of English Language and Literature at UCL as a Teaching Fellow in 2011 and as a Lecturer in 2013.
