The Making Publics Project at McGill University announces a Summer Seminar Series for advanced PhD candidates, recent PhDs, and junior faculty studying the early modern period. The first seminar in the series, Making Publics in Interregnum England, will be led by Lesley Cormack (History of Science, University of Alberta) and Michael Bristol (English, McGill University) from July 18-August 13, 2007.
This seminar will focus on selected writing from the tumultuous decades of the English interregnum, roughly 1640-1660, with particular attention to the fields of science and religion. We hope to recruit up to 12 scholars in the early stages of their careers working on any topic related to the seminar's concerns across the span of the seventeenth century. Scholars need not be focused on English history in particular and those investigating continental events relevant to the seminar topic and time period are also welcome to apply. The seminar will provide a research and discussion forum for work in progress.
The MaPs Project will provide reasonable travel costs to and from Montreal and the participantsí home cities (ie., best airfare or train fare with advance purchase), and housing during the month in Montreal. For additional details and application instructions, please visit the project website, www.makingpublics.mcgill.ca.
