The Project team are busy trying to craft a programme from the many wonderful abstracts we received for the conference, in such a way that avoids the requirement for a time-turner or a Tardis. Whilst we sort out the logistics, please consider registering for the conference.

Volume IV to the Press
The General Editors are very pleased to announce that the first volume of The Cambridge Works of Aphra Behn has now been submitted to Cambridge University Press. The volume of five plays (Volume IV in the overall sequence of eight) includes those written at the end of Behn’s career: The City Heiress (1682), The Luckey Chance (1686), The Emperor of the Moon (1687), The Widdow Ranter (1689) and The Younger Brother (1696). We anticipate that the volume will appear in late 2020. We wish to thank all our editors and advisory board members for their sterling work in putting this volume together. More updates when we have them.
In late September, Prof. Elaine Hobby will be travelling to Yale University to give a talk on our experiences from editing Aphra Behn, as part of the symposium ‘Scholarly Editing of Literary Texts’. The event features six general editors of scholarly editions from the long eighteenth century, and a blog report will be forthcoming.
