Editing Robert Burns for the 21st century

This AHRC award will support the first complete scholarly edition of Robert Burns' works and fund new research resources. Over the next eight years, six volumes, including The Oxford Handbook to Robert Burns and The Collected Prose of Robert Burns, will be published, with six more to follow in the next decade. The project will involve a team of five scholars at Glasgow led by Gerry Carruthers, who said that Burns studies was now "a growing area after years of neglect". The project will create an online exhibition space where people can share materials and discuss research. New editions of Burns' songs for James Johnson's The Scots Musical Museum and for George Thomson's Original Scottish Airs will be published, and new performances will be made available online. In addition to funding postdoctoral researchers and PhD students, the AHRC award will also support a number of public events.
