Christopher Whyte and Emma Dymock (Editors)

Christopher Whyte is probably the greatest living expert on MacLean's poetry. His annotated editions of the Dàin do Eimhir and An Cuilithionn contained a significant quantity of hitherto unpublished material and have been met with acclaim. He is himself a Gaelic poet of substance whose fifth collection, An Daolag Shìonach, is due to appear in 2012. Author of four novels in English, he taught from 1990 to 2005 at the Department of Scottish Literature in Glasgow University, and now divides his time between Budapest and Berlin.

Emma Dymock gained a First Class Honours in Celtic at the University of Edinburgh in 2003, and has since completed an MSc on symbolism in 20th century Gaelic poetry and a PhD on themes of politics and concepts of the self in Sorley MacLean's An Cuilithionn. She is currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Celtic and Scottish Studies at the University of Edinburgh and has written various articles and chapters on the subject of Sorley MacLean's poetry, as well as co-editing two books on Scottish and Gaelic literature.
