About the Project
The Titles of the New Testament: A New Approach to Manuscripts and the History of Interpretation (TiNT) project is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement n° 847428).
The project seeks to digitally edit every form of every title in every non-lectionary Greek manuscript that preserves part of the New Testament, using this data to contribute to new research related to six research questions:
- the diachronic development of paratextual traditions (especially titles in all their forms);
- the provenance of New Testament works in historical imagination;
- the relationship between bibliography and canon;
- the design, codicology, and artistic features of manuscripts;
- scribal identities and the sociology of textual transmission; and
- traditions of textual segmentation.
The data produced by the project will also raise new research questions and be publicly available. The objectives of the project are to rethink the critical value of manuscripts beyond the purely textual concerns of traditional textual criticism and to explore titular traditions as expressive modes of communication and as aspects of reception history.
The Principle Investigator (PI) and team members will work together to produce titular profiles for each manuscript, using this information to inform innovative research on specific research topics.
We invite applications from PhD level researchers who propose to carry out work that addresses one of the the project’s six critical questions and which focuses on manuscripts and paratextuality.
Please submit a CV, as 1-2 page PhD project proposal, a writing sample (no more than 20 pages), and 2 references as your application. Please address informal enquiries to Dr Garrick Allen (Garrick.firstname.lastname@example.org).
