Nottingham Trent University - Onward and upward

August 27, 2009

The landmark work of the 16th-century British travel editor, Richard Hakluyt, is to be republished as part of an ambitious project co-led by Nottingham Trent University. The medieval geographer, who was instrumental in the English settlement of North America, wrote three volumes, consisting of hundreds of individual documents. The project will be a collaboration between Claire Jowitt, professor of Renaissance English literature at the university's School of Arts and Humanities, and colleagues from the National University of Ireland Galway and the University of Sussex.
