The Forward early modern social history symposium provides an opportunity for postgraduates and academics to discuss aspects of their research.
‘Leisure, Pleasure and Play’ aims to encourage considerations of how, when, and why renaissance and early modern people enjoyed their recreational time. Suggestions for topics could include, but are not limited to, political, social, cultural, and gendered examinations of recreational activities; changes in use of recreational time over the period; regulation; recreational spaces; gambling and gaming; sports and hunting.
We are pleased to announce that the keynote speaker will be Prof Ronald Hutton (Bristol). Proposals of no more than 300 words are invited from postgraduates.
