I am delighted to report on the successful completion of five Degree Plus Internships which have given students the opportunity to gain an understanding of current cutting-edge scholarly editing principles. I spent some time last summer working on my edition of James Shirley’s The Young Admiral (licensed 1633, printed 1637). This is part of an international editorial project to edit all of James Shirley’s works which is supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and Oxford University Press. James Shirley is a leading Caroline dramatist whose works are being rediscovered so I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity for students to gain insight into the world of publishing and editing.
