To produce a new edition of John Ford's Collected Works, to be published in three volumes by Oxford University Press.
To produce an electronic concordance to the edition, to be freely available on the IES / SAS website.
Funding for this project was provided by the Arts and Humanities Research Board from 2005 to 2010, enabling us to employ Dr. Marcus Dahl as a Research Assistant; to purchase microfilms or scans of every extant copy of Ford’s poems, prose, and plays, and other research material; to organise an editorial conference in London, which included a staged reading of Perkin Warbeck; and to pay for a room, computers, telephone and infrastructure provided by the Institute of English Studies (Director, Professor Warwick Gould, FRSA).
The edition will appear in the prestigious ‘Oxford English Texts’ series of Oxford University Press.

The printed edition will be complemented by a complete Concordance using software created by Rob Watt. This will use a modern spelling text derived from the main edition, distinguishing homographs and offering multiple search facilities. The concordance will be available online, free of charge, on the School of Advanced Study's server.
