The next meeting of the Early Modern seminar will be this Wednesday 10 November in Amory B219 (note the change from our usual location this year). Please come along for our first mini-colloquium of the year, on the theme of “Leaving Shore.” The speakers and paper titles are as follows:
Michael Lea-O’Mahoney (History): ‘The Importance of Seapower in the English Civil War’
Kate Arthur (English): ‘”A foreign court lands here upon your shore’: Models of kingship in Persian drama’
Jo Esra (English): ‘”Terribly Turkished”: Losing Hearts and Minds in 17th Century Barbary’
The seminar will be video-conferenced to the Cornwall campus as usual. Exceptionally good refreshments will be served after the papers.
