Biography

Jeremy Smith’s research is on English historical linguistics, and he is working on a new Middle English project in collaboration with Professor Merja Stenroos (Stavanger University, Norway) and Dr Simon Horobin (Oxford).  This project has resulted in a major new annotated electronic corpus of unedited, localised texts from the late Middle English period.  This project also involves general theoretical work on language change and language-mapping, and more specialist research on the relationship of language and book history in the Middle and post-Middle English periods.

Jeremy Smith also works on Scots, and on English in Scotland.  He is Convener of the Board of Trustees of Scottish Language Dictionaries Ltd, and a member of Council of the Scottish Text Society.  He has been a Co-Investigator on the AHRC-supported Corpus of Modern Scottish Writing 1700-1945, and he is also a Co-Investigator on the AHRC-supported Editing Burns project.

He is currently developing, in collaboration with colleagues at Queen’s University Belfast and the University of St Andrews and with support from the Royal Society of Edinburgh, a project on the theme of Textual Afterlives, engaging with the transmission of medieval texts in the early modern and Enlightenment worlds with special reference toScotland and Ireland.

 

Supervision

Jeremy Smith has supervised many doctoral and masters'-level dissertations, all of which are directly linked to his research. He is especially interested in supervising theses in the following areas:

  • the methodology of historical linguistics
  • the language and literary remains of particular regions during the Middle English period
  • the transitions from Old to Middle, and from Middle to Early Modern English
  • Early Modern English
  • the history of Scots and English inScotland, with special reference to the period up to 1800
  • the reception of Middle English and Older Scots texts, 1500-1850
  • the history of literacy in English, with special reference to the forms and functions of punctuation

Teaching

Jeremy Smith teaches a range of undergraduate courses relating to his interests.  He convenes Honours programmes in English Historical Linguistics (History of English I and II), and in Scots (History of Scots, History of the Scottish Book), and he tutors and lectures at pre-Honours levels on these subjects.  He also offers classes on philology and historical linguistics to the department's postgraduate programmes, and to the Glasgow Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies: http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/critical/research/centres/gcmrs/
