The Society for Neo-Latin Studies (SNLS) warmly invites graduate students and Early Career Researchers to contribute to a public engagement project: The Early Modern Latin in London Walking Tour, planned for early June 2023.

The walking tour will introduce members of the public to Latin from the early modern period as it appears across the capital: on monuments, in literature about famous landmarks, on signs, and in artwork.

We are looking for graduate students and ECRs to collaborate in developing stops on this walking tour; and, if interested, to participate in the tours. Contributions will be approximately 500 words on a Neo-Latin stop along the proposed tour route. Our group will work together to develop the tour as a whole, and provides a good opportunity to meet others interested in Latin and the Early Modern.

As a starting point, examples for the tour might include:

  1. Inscriptions at St Paul’s Cathedral;
  2. Monument to the Fire of London;
  3. Descriptions of London in Neo-Latin literature.

The SNLS seeks to encourage the teaching and learning of Neo-Latin in scholarly and public activities. This event is being developed by the SNLS Early-Career, and Public Engagement Representatives, with the aim of engaging scholars interested in public engagement connected to Neo-Latin research and teaching.

If you are interested in getting involved, please email Rebecca Menmuir ( and Sharon van Dijk ( More information on the SNLS can be found at
