Former Postdoctoral Researcher of the Moore Institute receives IRCHSS Research Fellowship

Former post-doctoral scholar at the Moore Institute, Dr Jane Grogan (UCD), has been awarded an IRCHSS Research Fellowship for 2011-12. Jane's project on 'Persia in English Renaissance Literary and Political Thought' will produce two books: a monograph on The Persian Empire in English Renaissance Writing, 1549-1622 (under contract with Palgrave Macmillan) and, for the recently-launched MHRA Tudor and Stuart translation series, a new critical edition of the first English translation of Xenophon's Cyropaedia, an important classical source on Persia for early modern readers.
