My current research focuses on Old Norse/Latin bilingualism in medieval manuscripts. The project is funded by the European Commission through a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship (Horizon 2020). Its title is “Tracing the Invisible. Old Norse and Latin in medieval manuscripts” with the acronym INVISIBILIA. Before that, I was a member of the project “From manuscript fragments to book history” at the University of Bergen. This project was funded by Bergen Research Foundation (BFS). There, I was working on office lectionaries, which from Norway are only preserved in fragmentary form, and the Nidaros Ordinal in its various preserved form. This work is still going on. Other research activities cover sermon preaching in medieval Iceland and Norway, fourteenth-century Skálholt as a cultural hub the distribution and use of Peter Comestor’s Historia scholastica in the North, and Grimr Holmsteinsson’s Jóns saga baptista II.

With Dr. Lucy Easthope (Lincoln) I completed an ESRC-funded project on forensic science and post-Cold War security discourses. Before academia, I worked in research laboratories as a research assistant, served as an officer in the Canadian Naval Reserve (full and part-time), and worked for Bristol City Council as a Civil Contingencies/Emergency Planning Officer (Humanitarian assistance)….

I am a Lecturer in Political Science in the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies (SPAIS) at the University of Bristol and a Resident at the Pervasive Media Studio at the Bristol Watershed. My published work has appeared in a range of edited volumes and peer-reviewed academic journals including New Political Science, International Political Sociology, Review of International Studies, and the Journal of War and Culture Studies.

Alberto Campagnolo trained as a book conservator (in Spoleto, Italy) and has worked in that capacity in various institutions, e.g. London Metropolitan Archives, St. Catherine’s Monastery (Egypt), and the Vatican Library. He studied Conservation of Library Materials at Ca’ Foscari University Venice, and holds an MA in Digital Culture and Technology from King’s College London. He pursued a PhD on an automated visualization of historical bookbinding structures at the Ligatus Research Centre (University of the Arts, London). He was a CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow (2016-2018) in Data Curation for Medieval Studies at the Library of Congress (Washington, DC). Alberto, in collaboration with Dot Porter (SIMS, UPenn Libraries, Philadelphia, PA), has been involved from the onset in the development of VisColl, a model and tool for the recording and visualization of the gathering structure of books in codex format. Alberto has served on the Digital Medievalist board since 2014, first as Deputy Director, and as Director since 2015, and has been in the Editorial Board of the Journal of Paper Conservation since 2016.

MemberDominik Hünniger

I am a cultural historian with special interest in 18th century environmental, medical and natural history as well as the history of universities and scholarship. I obtained a PhD from the University of Goettingen with a thesis on the cultural history of epizootics in Mid-18th century Northern Europe. The thesis used multi-disciplinary approaches to the past experiences of humans and other species. My research critically engages with Animal Studies and the development of the scientific as well as quotidian engagement of humans with the natural world in the past but also the present. My current research project is a material history of 18th century entomology. It analyzes the pan-European fascination with insects and their taxonomy and behaviour as well as the role of global specimens in these processes in order to illuminate the development of scientific disciplines, global exchange and the practices of (academic) knowledge formation. The project will pay special attention to materiality, the role of images vs text and the means of knowledge exchange and discussion. The insect collections of the Hunterian in Glasgow, the Natural History Museum in London, the Natural History Museum in Copenhagen, the Museum of Evolution in Uppsala  as well of the Zoology Museum at the University of Kiel will be used for an analysis of their collections in this context. Collaboration with today’s curators is an important part of the project as historic zoological collections are invaluable sources for current taxonomic and biodiversity research in the life sciences. In 2020, I co-founded the Collection Ecologies Research Collective which is a place for discussing the intersections of the history of collections, material culture, environmental humanities, (historical) ecology and the material history of the sciences and knowledge. In addition I am also publishing on the history of universities as corporate institutions and academics as subjects in (by lack of a better term) “enlightened absolutism”. This research also is informed by current developments in higher education globally and discussion on the future of the humanities. I am currently a research associate at the DFG-Centre for Advanced Studies “Imaginaria of Force” at the University of Hamburg. Since August 2017 I am co-editor of the Brill series “Emergence of Natural History” (ENH) and since December 2020 member of the editorial board of Nuncius – Journal of the Material and Visual History of Science. Additionally, I am an advisor to the initiative to strengthen research, outreach and conservation of the University of Goettingen’s academic collections. Academic heritage, the history and future of collections and the material aspects of knowledge formation are my keay concerns also as an affiliate researcher at The Hunterian, University of Glasgow.

I am an ancient historian with a particular interest in the Greek world, Hellenistic history, and religion, as well as Greek history during the Roman period. Teaching in a History department at Southampton, I am also increasingly fascinated by the reception of the Greek world in later periods of history. My forthcoming book on Greek Sanctuaries and the Rise of Rome explores the spread of Roman power as seen from religious sites in Greece, the Aegean, and Asia Minor (from the third until the early first century BCE). It brings out the key role of cults and sanctuaries in early exchanges between Greeks, Romans, and Hellenistic rulers – in war, diplomacy, and trade. As part of my work for the Copenhagen Associations Project, I undertook research on ancient Greek associations, carrying out surveys and detailed studies of epigraphic evidence (esp. from the Aegean), and analysing religious aspects, foreign involvement, and relations with Rome. My ongoing research interests include the local histories and wider connections of islands in the Aegean from the fifth century BCE, through the Hellenistic age, into the Roman Imperial period; Greek sanctuaries and their networks; and travel and mobility in the ancient world.
