A new scholarly edition of Poly-Olbion provides an occasion for fresh critical engagement with the text. We are currently commissioning work for an edited volume of critical essays, which we will propose for inclusion in the new Oxford University Press series, ‘Early Modern Literary Geographies’. This volume will bring together leading early modern scholars, and will aim to resituate the text fully in relation to current developments in the field.
Confirmed contributors at this stage include: Daniel Cattell, Alison Chapman, Andrew Hadfield, Bernhard Klein, Sjoerd Levelt, Andrew McRae, Sara Trevisan, and Angus Vine. In advance of the volume’s completion, contributors will be invited to participate in a conference to be held at the Royal Geographical Society, London, in September 2015.
