New Team Member: Sarah Gilbert

The Ordered Universe has a new administrative assistant, Sarah Gilbert, a project stalwart who has participated in a number of our symposia and workshops. Sarah has taken up post already, and we are very glad indeed that she has! Sarah will have charge of communications and the day-to-day running of the project with its four strands: academic core, schools outreach, creative arts and public education.

In her own words:

I am currently in the final stages of a PhD at Durham University (supervised by Helen Foxhall Forbes and Richard Gameson) where my research has focussed on the copying of medical texts into non-medical manuscripts in early medieval England. My wider research interests include palaeography, history of the book, and monastic intellectual culture, with a particular focus on England up to the end of the twelfth century. I am delighted to be joining the Ordered Universe project as an administrative assistant, and I am looking forward to supporting the project members in their efforts to understand and share the brilliance of Robert Grosseteste and his surviving scientific treatises.
