We’re pleased to announce that Dr. J. A. McGowan, Oxford, has agreed to take on the position of Project Leader of the Dictionary. Dr. McGowan was educated at Princeton, Oxford, and Wales, and studied under Peter Brown. She knows Latin; medieval, early modern, and modern French; middle and early modern English; some Spanish, some Portuguese, some Mandarin, some Old English; and has an acquaintance with Welsh and Mandarin.
