This year's theme is ‘Culture and Communication’
Call for papers:
We welcome proposals for 20 minute papers addressing the theme (however expansively!). Please could you send 200 words by Friday 16th March to Sheilagh dot Holmes at warwick dot ac dot uk
We shall also have a session in which doctoral students can give 3-minute lightning talks in which they can briefly outline their research to other postgraduates – if you are interested in participating in this, please contact Sheilagh at the email address above.
The day will start with a report on the Georgian Papers project, which is digitising much of the Royal Archive http://georgianpapersprogramme.com/
Finally, at the end of the day we will gather to discuss the ongoing development of our Midlands Eighteenth-Century Research Network, and we hope very much that representatives from the Midlands institutions will be able to stay for this.
There is no charge for this event. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
Registration is essential - please register here.
