LUP are delighted to congratulate Ralph Hanna on receiving the Sir Israel Gollancz Prize 2015 from the British Academy yesterday for his contribution to, and prolific research in medieval book history and palaeography. The Sir Israel Gollancz Prize is awarded biennially for work connected with Anglo-Saxon, Early English Language and Literature, English Philology, or the History of English Language.
Ralph Hanna is Professor Emeritus of Palaeography at the University of Oxford and Distinguished Professor Emeritus of the University of California, and his previous books include Introducing English Medieval Book History (Liverpool University Press, 2013, also available in paperback, 2014.)
Ralph’s latest book, Editing Medieval Texts will be available in October and is a book which has been conceived as a handbook for graduates interested in texts and their manuscript presentation, not solely in editing them. As such, it addresses the broad interests in all fields from antiquity to early modern studies.
