Dear all, Welcome to a new year which promises a gamut of glorious long-eighteenth-century events, workshops, opportunities in Oxford! RECSO has had a very successful first year, developing its own graduate-orientated interdisciplinary research network and providing a sophisticated platform (Blog, Facebook, Twitter) for connecting researchers, old and new, near and far, online and in person. None of this of course could be done without RECSO’s dedicated postgraduate committee, the support of TORCH, and the ongoing guidance of Dr Freya Johnston, Dr Ruth Scobie, and Prof Abigail Williams.
RECSO’s Hilary Term programme is soon to be announced. We have one space left for the new “90 Seconds, 5 Questions” workshop series, so please get in touch if you’re interested. The RECSO Project Support Scheme is also now underway, and open for applications. Finally, RECSO is on the lookout for new graduate members to join its steering and development committee – for full details please see the Network page. The full seminar listings for this term can be found in the Seminars section of the website:
- Besterman Enlightenment Workshop
- Bodleian Centre for the Study of the Book
- Restoration to Reform: 1660-1832
- Romantic Research Seminar
- Graduate Seminar in History, 1680-1850
- Long Eighteenth-Century Research in Progress Seminar

All the best for 2015, Adam Bridgen, RECSO Director (2014-15).
