Dictionary of Old English plea
Dear ISAS Members,
I hope this all finds you well, surviving the collective end of terms and semesters, and looking forward to what I am sure are well-deserved breaks.
As Roberta Frank recently reminded me, The Dictionary of Old English is in urgent need of funds (before 1 April) to match a major foundation grant; you can read more about this initiative here: http://www.doe.utoronto.ca/pages/support.html
If you are inclined to help, this might also be a timely moment to thank Antonette diPaolo Healey for her extraordinary contribution to theDictionary and our field over the past three decades and more (n.b. I have temporarily removed her from the ISAS list-serv so she will not see this email!).
Contributions to the project sent with the message -- "In honour of Antonette diPaolo Healey" -- would be listed under her name in the 2014 annual report.
All good wishes for a happy 2014,
