Completion of a book-length study on late medieval English hospitals as centers of religion, literature, and civic affairs.  

The civic responsibility of hospitals for both medical and spiritual care lends them a distinct status among premodern institutions, for they constantly negotiated theology, medicine, and politics. The story of how hospitals participated in England’s literary and civic histories has yet to be written. I fill this gap with a new monograph on premodern English hospitals and the varied texts written, read, and performed within them. Hospital priests wrote foundation narratives, medical compendia, spiritual guides, and dramatic scripts. Hospital scribes copied devotional manuscripts and voluminous records that survive today. By studying the literary cultures of St. Bartholomew’s and St. Thomas of Acon in London, St. Leonard’s in York, and St. Mark’s of Bristol, I show how these institutions fostered devotional practice, promoted themselves in the civic sphere, responded to controversy, and negotiated the administration of charity over two hundred tumultuous years.

Upgrades to the Middle English Compendium (MEC), three interlinked digital resources related to the study of Middle English: the electronic Middle English Dictionary (eMED); an expanded version of the HyperBibliography of Middle English (HB), a bibliography of primary sources cited in the dictionary; and the Corpus of Middle English (CME), a substantial collection of Middle English primary texts.

We propose three kinds of improvements to the Middle English Compendium: (1) to enlarge and update the Middle English Dictionary, Bibliography, and Corpus with both existing and newly created supplemental material; (2) to make the data more readily and more completely human  and machine readable, by making explicit information hidden in the reticence of the print dictionary, and by adding information, so as to allow for a more satisfactory experience for users and better integration with online resources; and (3) to transform the Compendium from a static resource to a dynamic one, both editorially and technically. Editorially, we will add the ability to accept, store, and publish additions and corrections, while distinguishing them from the original MED and according them a staged reception, ranging from bare acknowledgment to full integration. Technically, we will free the data from its legacy system while improving on that system's considerable functionality.

24 months of fellowship stipend support per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

The Newberry Library requests funding for three years (36 months per year) of fellowship support to continue a highly successful program of residential humanities fellowships at the Newberry Library. Over many decades this program has generated a rich harvest of humanities scholarship while also serving as a catalyst for creating a dynamic intellectual community within this research institution. This proposal details the achievements and impact of the program and outlines the Library's procedures for publicizing the program, selecting the fellows, and fostering their scholarly activities.
