Early Modern Work In Progress Seminars 2022/23

The seminars are very informal, and meant to give a forum for discussion for papers/ideas that are still in the early stages. Particularly welcome are papers by PhD students, and offers by staff likely to lead to a roundtable discussion of an issue, controversy, or recent publication that you think should be discussed.  There is no set format, so it doesn't need to be a formal paper as such. Please don't hesitate to contact Tim Peacock if you have any possible suggestions that you think could work.

Organiser: Dr Tim Peacock

Seminars take place at 12.30-2pm on Mondays in the McKechnie Room, 10 University Gardens
