All semester 2 events from the Northern Early Modern Network

About this event

Join us on Friday afternoons 1-2.30pm (UK) for all things early modern!

This semester we have another fantastic lineup of speakers for our 'NEMN Seminar Series' (see full schedule below) and as if that wasn't enough we also have some exciting new 'Works in Progress' sessions where PGRs will discuss their research and get feedback. Do join us to hear about exciting new research and discuss all things early modern in a friendly and informal setting.

All events will take place on Zoom and the links will be sent to attendees in advance.

Our events all take place during work hours to try and ensure they are more accessible. We opted to schedule them around lunchtime so grab your lunch, sign in and enjoy a whole host of exciting new early modern research!

However, we do appreciate that work schedules and/or time zones might make it difficult to attend from time to time and so we will record the papers ( only the sessions where the speaker has given permission.)

Recording details: We ask that all attendees register via Eventbrite and we will then provide a closed link to the recording via email to anyone who has registered and this will be available to watch for 2 weeks.
