'Continuities: From Medieval to Early Modern in English Literature (1400-1650)' is a postgraduate conference taking place at Trinity College Dublin on 25 and 26 June 2009. The conference seeks to tap into the current movement towards synthesis and co-operation between medievalists and early modernists by calling upon the future generation of critics (postgraduates) to present papers which emphasise literary linkages and which interrogate the notion of a discernible break between the two eras.
We are delighted that Professor Andrew Hiscock of the University of Wales, Bangor and Dr John McCafferty of University College Dublin will be delivering plenary lectures at the event.
The conference will be of particular interest to those in the fields of English literature, languages, history and theology. All are most welcome to attend. See the conference blog for further details.
Continuities Postgraduate Conference is supported by the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, TCD, the Long Room Hub, TCD and the Society for Renaissance Studies.
