Kari Ellen Gade 2009, ‘Acknowledgements’ in Kari Ellen Gade (ed.), Poetry from the Kings’ Sagas 2: From c. 1035 to c. 1300. Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages 2. Turnhout: Brepols [check printed volume for citation].
The editors would very much like to acknowledge the support of Stofnun Árna Magnússonar í íslenzkum fræðum in Reykjavík and Den Arnamagnæanske Samling in Copenhagen and of Vésteinn Ólason (Director) and Matthew Driscoll (Afdelingsleder) at the respective institutes. Both Institutes have generously opened their doors to editors and research associates from the skaldic project, provided access to their libraries, shared their technical equipment and made possible the scanning and transcriptions of manuscripts which serve as the foundation for the edition.
We would like to express our gratitude to the Australian Research Council for the ongoing support of the project, which has been instrumental in allowing us to maintain a group of Research Assistants and Associates who are of enormous benefit to the edition as a whole, including this volume. We are indebted to Margaret Clunies Ross, who has made her own Research Assistants and Associates available to the other General Editors to help with the data entering of other volumes. We also grateful to the Joint Committee of the Nordic Research Councils for Humanities (NOS-H, Nordiska samarbetsnämnden för humanistisk forskning) and the Icelandic Research Council, whose support benefited the entire edition, including this volume, by enabling the funding of Research Associates (Valgerður Erna Þorvaldsdóttir, Soffía Guðný Guðmundsdóttir) for the transcription of manuscripts. A special thanks goes to Guðrún Nordal, who volunteered the time and expertise of her assistants to the other General Editors. We also gratefully acknowledge the support of the (UK) Arts and Humanities Research Council, whose grant helped fund the work of Diana Whaley and her Research Fellow, Kate Heslop.
On behalf of the Contributing Editors of SkP II, we would like to thank the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, Canada, for awarding a grant to Russell Poole, and the University of Sheffield Faculty of Arts Research Fund, which funded Jayne Carroll’s research in Iceland.
