You are cordially invited to our last academic paper of this term. We are delighted to welcome Prof. Peter Burke to Birkbeck. He is a distinguished historian of early modern cultural history, whose many books include Popular Culture in Early Modern Europe (3rd rev. edn, 2009), The Fabrication of Louis XIV (1992), and A Social History of Knowledge: From Gutenberg to Diderot (2000).
