Two early modern reading groups are meeting in early December.

The next Early Modern Reading Group will meet on Thursday 4 December, at 6.30pm, in the Skinners Arms, Judd Street WC1. They’ll look at January, February and March (or more if you like) from Spenser’s The Shepheardes Calender (1579). There’s an edition here:

The next meeting of the Birkbeck Early Modern Reading Group will be on Monday December 8th at 6pm in the Tillotson room, 30 Russell Square. They will be reading Seneca’s Phaedra and thinking about the way Roman tragedy influenced the Renaissance, particularly the revenge genre.
