Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics


Professor Emma Gilby awarded Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship

Congratulations to Professor Emma Gilby, who has been awarded a three-year Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship for a new project, entitled ‘Women and the Making of Modern Languages: A New Modernism’. She’ll be investigating the lives and labours of some of the first scholars of MMLL, as they taught, researched and published in the early decades of the twentieth century. For these women, languages meant excitement, travel, freedom, academic collaboration and a whole new kind of literary study. This project will tell their story.
