In recent years I have been a member of the selection committee for the Max-Weber-Preis für Nachwuchsforschung and served on the Selection Committee of EURIAS [European Institutes of Advanced Studies] and on the Selma V. Forkosch Prize Committee.

From 2012 to 2014 I was part of a research group associated with the large Danish-Norwegian project to create a new critical edition in digital form of the complete works of Ludvig Holberg (1684-1754). In this connection I  co-edited a volume entitled Ludvig Holberg (1684-1754). Learning and Literature in the Nordic Enlightenment, Routledge 2017.

Other current work includes the commissioning of volume editors for the Edinburgh Edition of Dugald Stewart which Paul Wood and I have brought under contract with Edinburgh University Press.

From 2007 to 2011, I was one of the four directors of the Dissenting Academies Project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust and the British Academy.
