Fellow in Focus – Professor John Morrill
Tuesday, 17 September 2019, 1 – 2pm
Professor John Morrill has been involved in a number of research projects, most obviously as one of the four PIs on the 1641 depositions project. He is the General Editor of a new multi-volume (and online) edition of all the recorded words of Oliver Cromwell, which was much facilitated by the creation of a Virtual Research Environment created for the project by High Performance Computing at Trinity.
In this 'in conversation' event, Director of the Trinity Long Room Hub, Prof Jane Ohlymeyer will sit down with Prof Morrill to discusses not only his current research but the scope of his work over the years.
About Professor John Morrill
John Morrill trained in Oxford and taught there and in Stirling before moving to Cambridge in 1975 where he has been ever since, and (from 1997) Professor of British and Irish History. He is so in love with Ireland and the Irish that his four daughters suspect he must have been swapped by mistake at birth with an Irish child in an adjacent cot in the hospital on Salford Quays (100 yards from Old Trafford Football Ground).
