Renaissance Reading Group: The Rehearsal Transpros’d

The Renaissance Reading group will reconvene in October (exact date to be confirmed at the start of term). In preparation for the first meeting, please read ‘Rehearsal Transpros’d’ (1672) by Andrew Marvell, available on EEBO, and come along with any thoughts or comparisons they’d like to discuss. The convenors are setting this well in advance as it is rather long!

In further news, Vicky Sparey is stepping down as convenor for the next year. Her hard work in getting the group started and running over the last two years has been very much appreciated. Vicky is being replaced by Jem Bloomfield. He and co-convenor Briony Frost are currently compiling a long list of interesting and obscure texts for the group to consider next year, so please feel free to email both of them with suggestions for topics or reading material over the summer. The group expects to be running bi-weekly sessions next year, probably alternating with the Early Modern Centre Seminar sessions again (although, again, if anyone has a better suggestion do get in touch). We are also hoping to restore its evening trips to the White Hart!
