Public Engagement Scheme

The Society for Renaissance Studies has established a funding scheme for Public Engagement (‘Knowledge Exchange’ or ‘Impact-activities’). Bids can be made to support any form of public engagement for Renaissance studies, broadly construed. The Society’s understanding of public engagement is that a major effort to communicate beyond the academy can be demonstrated, and/or that the event will reach a public not consisting primarily of academics. This includes, but is not limited to Impact activities, under REF criteria. The deadline is 1 December each year.

Author of first English novel kept it hidden for ten years – here's why

A dense work of early English prose, strewn throughout with serious and teasing marginalia from its author, might not be the most likely candidate for stage adaptation – but this project has just been undertaken by a team of artists and academics in Sheffield. William Baldwin’s "Beware the Cat", written in 1553, will be performed in September as part of the university’s 2018 Festival of the Mind.

Rachel Stenner and Frances Babbage discuss Baldwin's unique text.
