project: The Cinema Authorship of Lindsay Anderson

The principal aim of this project is to evaluate Lindsay Anderson’s claim to the status of authorship by comparing his private thoughts about his work with (a) his public statements about the extent and nature of his achievements; and (b) the way his ideas were received by the various publics to which they were addressed. The research proposed calls for an approach that compares information gleaned from Anderson’s diaries and other personal papers (including correspondence with friends and colleagues) with an analysis of the way his film projects were received – by producers, professional r [read more]

project: Philosophical issues in genomics: an annotated bibliographic database of scientific literature

Contemporary molecular biology – often conducted under the banner of genomics – has the potential to transform our understanding of issues such as the origins and history of life, human nature and biodiversity. It is also transforming the way biological science is practised, a process that is both interesting in its own right and potentially a great source of insight into the nature of scientific change and the relationships between science and society.

project: Dictionary of Scottish Architects

The Dictionary of Scottish Architects is a database with biographies and full job lists for all those who practised in Scotland after 1840. This includes not only men and women who were born in Scotland but also those from elsewhere who designed buildings and entered competitions here.

It is anticipated that this new project will be completed in 2011. [read more]

project: The Soldier in Later Medieval England

It has been argued that standing armies and professional soldiers were a phenomenon of the early modern state. There can be no doubt, however, that the period from 1369 to 1453 witnessed hundreds of thousands of soldiers in the pay of the crown. Although these dates themselves relate to the beginning and end of important phases in the war with France commonly known as the Hundred Years War, soldiers were dispatched for campaign and garrison service not only across the Channel, but also in the Iberian Peninsular, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
