The CMRS is pleased to support our fellow early modern and medieval scholars at The University of Melbourne. Please see the Early Modern Circle’s call for 2015 papers, below:
As 2015 gets underway, we are calling for papers for this year’s Early Modern Circle, to be held at 6.15 pm on the third Monday of most months. If you would like to offer a paper (alone or with others), or lead a discussion session, please send suggestions to all three of us at the emails below.
Papers can be offered in a variety of formats: single papers of 30-35 minutes, shorter papers of 15 minutes with two speakers per session, or thematic discussion sessions with associated reading proposed and lead by someone with a special interest in that material. We encourage people to propose a shorter paper jointly with someone working on a similar theme, to encourage cohesiveness. If you propose a short paper on your own, we can also try to pair you with another speaker. And, of course, we welcome collaborative papers if people are working on shared projects.
All formats allow ample room for questions and discussion, which are an integral part of the sessions, and we aim to conclude each session by 7.30 pm. We usually go for drinks or dinner after the seminar – all welcome. Information about last year’s program can be found at:
The dates for the Early Modern Circle in 2015 will be:
- Monday 16th March
- Monday 20th April
- Monday 18th May
- Monday 15th June – Session has been taken.
- Monday 27th July – Session has been taken.
- Monday 17th August
- Monday 21st September
- Monday 19th October
- Monday 16th November
Please email all three of us a proposal that includes a provisional title and your preferred date (with at least one back-up option) by the 22nd February 2015. We will be in touch as soon as possible after that date. We hope to accommodate as many offered papers as possible, depending on scheduling restrictions, and look forward to hearing from many of you.
