Early Modern Group

Welcome to the Early Modern Discussion Group at the University of Sheffield.

Run by postgraduates, but open to all, the group aims to provide an informal and friendly opportunity for interdisciplinary discussion.

Postgraduates and staff from History, English and Archaeology meet every month around a central theme.  We are always looking for new themes, so if you have a tricky problem, or an untried idea you want to discuss, please contact us.

Group Coordinators:
James Mawdesley
