For the 2015-16 academic year I’ll be a Senior Research Fellow at University College London’s new Institute of Advanced Studies.
As well as Tamar Garb as director and Catherine Stokes as administrator, there are already four junior research fellows in place. A call for other fellows to be visitors here has a deadline of 31 October 2015, with further rounds in January and March 2016.
I’m seeing this post as an opportunity to balance two things – getting my head down and writing and being part of an intellectual community. I’ll have a shared office at UCL, just round the corner from Jeremy Bentham, and will be dividing my time between there and libraries nearby.
I’ll be giving a talk at UCL on 23 November 2015, 6pm – “The Territories and Majesty of King John”, in ‘Common Ground’ (a room in the South Wing of the Wilkins building). This is the same talk I’ll be giving at Warwick a couple of weeks earlier (abstract).
