The next North West Early Modern Seminar will be hosted by the University of Lancaster on May 2nd 2018. We are currently looking for speakers to present either 20-25 minute papers, or brief 5 minute papers related to their research interests, in any discipline, in the early modern period.
Previous speakers have presented papers on topics as diverse as the early modern origins of sign language, the many faces of the Elizabethan pirate, and eighteenth-century tavern culture. The five minute slots are ideal for presenting work in progress, new projects, or for PhD students wanting to gain experience in presenting.
The application process will be conducted on a “first-come-first-served” basis.
If you wish to volunteer please send your name, institution and the title or subject area of your paper to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 pm on 29th March 2018.
We look forward to hearing from you and hope you will feel free to promote the CFP and event at your own institutions.
