Congratulations to Dr Anna Dorofeeva, IRC Government of Ireland Fellow
at the School of History from 2017 to 2019, who has recently been
appointed to a permanent lectureship in digital plaeography with the
Institute for Digital Humanities at the University of Göttingen. The
appointment follows another success from earlier this year: her
monograph, Reading Nature in the Early Middle Ages: Writing, Language
and Creation in the Latin Physiologus, c. 700–1000, won the inaugural
2021 ANZAMEMS (Australian and New Zealand Association for Medieval and
Early Modern Studies) – Arc Humanities Press Award for Original
Research. The prize consists of a book contract with Arc Humanities
Press and a grant of $10,000 AUD to cover the costs of publishing it
as gold open access.
