Description

Space for lunch and the presentation with Professor Helen Smith is currently FULL. The sessions throughout the rest of the day are FREE AND OPEN TO ANYONE to attend, so please still come along.

Please do email us if you'd like to be put on the waiting list for lunch and Professor Smith's presentation (yorkcabinetofcuriosities@gmail.com).

We are holding a Spring Colloquium for postgraduate students who work in Early Modern studies (c.1500-1700).

The afternoon colloquium is an informal and friendly forum to meet other early modernists and a great opportunity to find out about ongoing projects, research and postgraduate forums at other universities. We would welcome papers from students near and far.

To start a day of discussing excellent research, we have a keynote presentation from Professor Helen Smith on the Thin Ice Press, an exciting new printing press project based at the English department at University of York. The project is in process of making a reproduction common press, based on one that belonged to Thomas Gent – the York printer who produced pamphlets on the frozen River Ouse in 1740. This presentation will be followed by short sessions based around the wonderful and varied postgraduate work taking place at all of our universities.
