Jane Potter selected for BBC workshop
Jane Potter from the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies at Oxford Brookes has been selected as one of the twelve researchers invited to participate in an AHRC/BBC workshop on the First World War. The AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) issued a call in December inviting expressions of interest from researchers interested in taking part in an event that will help inform and influence BBC thinking around the coverage of the centenary of the First World War in 2014.
Jane Potter is the editor of a new Penguin Classic, Three Poets of the First World War: Ivor Gurney, Isaac Rosenberg, Wilfred Owen (2011). Her co-editor is Jon Stallworthy, Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Oxford. Jane is also editor of the Wilfred Owen Association Journal.
It was the first AHRC call of its kind and a total of 73 expressions of interest were received with 12 researchers selected by the specially convened panel.
