CFP: Long-Eighteenth-Century Research in Progress Seminar (Michaelmas Term 2015)

The Long-Eighteenth-Century Research in Progress Seminar explores all aspects of the (very) long Eighteenth-Century (1688-1832) in a supportive and informal environment, welcoming speakers from across disciplines.

We are currently inviting proposals for presentations during Michaelmas Term 2015.

The seminar would be of particular interest to graduate students seeking to gain valuable public speaking experience and wishing to present their research in an encouraging and receptive setting. Presentations can range from conference-style papers to less formalised discussions of research in progress and vary in length from 25 to 40 minutes.

The seminar takes place in St Anne’s College, Seminar Room 3, on Thursdays of odd weeks at 5.15pm. The following dates are currently available: October 29th, November 12th and November 26th.

Interested speakers should email: 18thcenturyresearchinprogress@gmail.com

Please include your name, College, proposed presentation title/topic and an abstract of 200-300 words. Please also include your availability (although we are mostly looking for speakers available during Michaelmas at the moment, we are open to proposals for Hilary and Trinity as well).

Deadline for proposals: Friday 4th September

We look forward to hearing from you,

Anna Senkiw and Jacob Lloyd
