This joint event is also the annual SNLS Researcher and Postgraduate Day in honour of Philip Ford.
The Society for Neo-Latin Studies has organised a one-day event to be held in Manchester next March to give postgraduate and post-doctoral researchers opportunities to discuss ideas, meet other scholars in the discipline, present papers on their current research, and to attend a special workshop on ‘Editing Neo-Latin Texts’ led by Prof. Sarah Knight. This will be the sixth in a successful series of meetings the Society has organised for researchers at relatively early stages of their careers.
