The Society for Neo-Latin Studies invites submissions for papers for a conference on 15–16 September 2017, at Churchill College, Cambridge, on Neo-Latin Literary Perspectives on Britain and Ireland, 1520–1670. In this period, Latin was the international language of European literature and a host of material dealing with British and Irish political and cultural identity survives both by authors working within Britain and Ireland and by those outside. Proposed papers dealing with the perception and depiction of Britain and Ireland from elsewhere in Europe are therefore encouraged as well as those on works written by authors resident in Britain or Ireland. Papers may discuss works in poetry or prose, and international scholars are very much encouraged to submit abstracts for consideration.
A two-day conference in the Auditorium of Corpus Christi College, Merton Street, Oxford
14-15 JUNE 2016 from 10.00 to 18.30.
The website of the conference, with links to the poster, full programme, and to the Registraton page, is available here.
The webpage of the Marie Curie project, Greek Studies in 15th Century Europe, is available here.
Friday 13th January 2017, University of Leicester, College Court, Knighton Road, Leicester LE2 3UF, 10am-5pm
This one-day conference is about the ‘invisible work’ of scholarly editing: about the process that goes into a published text, but is hidden from the final product.
This event is sponsored by the AHRC and the School of Arts, University of Leicester.

The event demonstrated lots of connections between different subjects and drama of different periods and initiated some useful connections to schools.
