We are pleased to announce the first session of The Thomas Browne Seminar, a joint project between Birkbeck College, University of London and Exeter University. Browne was a significant figure in the intellectual landscape of the mid seventeenth century, but has come to be seen, in many accounts, as a ‘quaint’ and retiring figure, withdrawn from the mainstream of political and intellectual life. The seminar aims to explore and restore the significance of Browne across the numerous fields which occupy his writing.
We will be holding our first meeting, to discuss Sir Thomas Browne and his contemporaries on Saturday 8th April 2006 at Birkbeck College and would like to invite proposals for papers on any aspect of Browne’s works and context.
An initial expression of interest, a.s.a.p. would be appreciated, for funding purposes. Abstracts by 1st July.
