THE GOTHIC LIBRARY PROJECT
This was a pilot project begun in 2004 with the help of three grants from the Comunidad Autónoma de Madrid (CAM). The students' main task was to transcribe material from microfilm onto computer. A collection of novellas and bluebooks was thus obtained, the texts of which will be appearing in The Northanger Library Project by and by. Meanwhile, they were passed to students in the postgraduate course "The Roots of Gothic Fiction" who, for their final course papers, were asked each to produce an analysis of one particular story. Some of the results merit reworking into publishable form. For the academic year 2005-6 The Gothic Library Project was redefined to offer both transcription and analysis on the basis of specific criteria. Five students, two of them with CAM grants, have worked on this project (Carlos Benedicto, Estíbaliz Suárez, Marta Marín, Diana Luque, Irene Hernández). THE GOTHIC LIBRARY PROJECT became The Northanger Library Project in 2006 when it received official support from the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science.

The TRELLIS Papers
This is a series of working papers designed as the logical venue for publishing research produced in The TRELLIS Seminar and elsewhere, by both students and staff.
TRELLIS is an acronym for "Teaching Research in English-Language Literatures, Intermediate Stage". The TRELLIS Project was part of a wider programme designed to gradually introduce the concept of research in the literatures written in English into the three study cycles. Its name of course alluded to the interlace of initiatives it set in motion among the three cycles.
Begun in 2002, the project was officially launched in 2003 with a Teaching Innovation grant from the UAM. Meanwhile, the 'trellis' concept has outgrown its original intention and now has the full function suggested by the word: an interlace of efforts which, in bringing together various types of research at different levels of complexity, seeks to reinforce and disseminate results, thus hoping to create a feedback loop throughout the three Cycles. One practical aim of The TRELLIS Papers is to provide a flexible, reasonably speedy method of publication by editing each paper independently. For a catalogue of titles, click on THE GATEWAY PRESS
