September 23, 2021

We are happy to announce that Professor Leith Davis has received a SSHRC Partnership Engage Grant for the project: “Engaging Public and Academic Audiences to Recover Lost Voices of Scottish History: 'The Lyon in Mourning' Manuscript and the Jacobite Networks of the 1745 Rising.”

This means there is now an official collaboration between our Scottish Studies Centre, SFU's Digital Humanities Innovation Lab and the National Library of Scotland that will allow us to:

  • Continue with the TEI encoding of the “Lyon in Mourning”
  • Hire a research student who is Edinburgh-based to do work on our behalf in the National Library of Scotland’s archives 
  • Construct an interactive website
  • Mobilize important community research
