Calling all Text Correctors! DJO has been approached to see if we can interest any of our old hands (or new recruits) in becoming “volunteer editors” on the Queen’s Digital Archive Project. The goal of the project is to compile a digital archive of all the Queen’s official engagements over the course of her reign, from 6 February 1952 to the present day, which will be published online. It is an independent project, conceived by someone who used to work at Buckingham Palace, and who has the support of the Palace. To date, the project has been working with a number of schools, who have tasked their students with producing spreadsheets of the Queen’s engagements, using The Times online archive. For its next phase, the project is seeking people to format the spreadsheets (estimated that it takes approximately 3.5 hours to format one year). Proficiency in Microsoft excel and a keen eye for detail are requirements. If you are interested, please to be in touch with info.queensdigitalarchive@gmail.com or write to us and we'll put you in contact.

We are very excited to announce a new one-year MA by Research in Dickens Studies that will be taught by the University of Buckingham (home of The Drood Inquiry and Dickens Journals Online ) and in partnership with the Charles Dickens Museum in London. The course will commence in October of this year, based at our new London premises at 51 Gower Street, Bloomsbury, and will allow access to the Museum's unique archive collections as well as the expertise of the Buckingham English Department and numerous guest seminar speakers from the Dickens community worldwide. Under close guidance, successful applicants will write a substantial research-based thesis based on a topic of their choosing, under the broad umbrella of 'Dickens Studies'. More details are available here.
