New Drafting Editors at the Dictionary of Old English

June 11, 2014 by Communications

CMS is very glad to announce that two new assistant professors have been hired as Drafting Editors at the Dictionary of Old English – Robert Getz and Stephen Pelle. Both Rob and Steve will join the DOE team as of 1 July, working with the new Cameron Professor of Old English, Roy Liuzza. They bring to the job a deep knowledge of Old English language and literature, along with the training in medieval Latin and Germanic vernacular languages that CMS is known for: Rob Getz earned his PhD from Toronto in 2008, and Stephen Pelle in 2012. Rob and Stephen have a good working knowledge of the DOE, having served as Research Assistants there during their doctoral years at CMS under the supervision of Toni Healey. Finally, both have strong ties to the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, where Rob earned his LMS in 2012, and where Stephen is currently completing his LMS. Please welcome them as they participate in the renewal and strengthening of Old English studies at Toronto for the next generation!
