We're delighted to anounce a forthcoming series of online discussions, organised by the University of Newcastle's Medieval & Early Modern Studies Research Group in conjunction with the Stationers' Company Archive.
With libraries and archives closed, and teaching having to adapt to online platforms, this last year has been difficult for our research community. We decided to propose a few round-table events as a low-pressure format which would allow researchers and academics, at every stage of their career, to present on current work, to return to work which has been stalled or dormant during the pandemic, or to sketch the parameters of proposed new work to an audience of peers. We initially planned to host two 90 minute sessions, each of four papers. In fact, the response was overwhelming, and we're planning to schedule a further two sessions in June and July. Details of the first two sessions are:
April 16th, 10.30-12pm (GMT)
May 7th, 3.00-4.30pm (GMT)
You can download abstracts of all papers here.
The roundtables are free to attend. If you are interested in attending, or have any other queries regarding these and future panels, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to hearing more about the exciting new research emerging in this very lively field!
