The Birkbeck Early Modern Society Summer Bulletin is here!
This issue travels widely in space and time. It features articles about visits by:
Timothy Alves who takes us on a tour of the tombs, shrines, courtyards, and monuments of early modern India in ‘A Brief Guide to Mughal Architecture’ and John Croxon who stays closer to home with a tour of the battlefield at Tewkesbury.
This issue’s arts reviews are from Sue Dale on The Damnation of Faust at the Coliseum, John Croxon on Cardenio at the Swan, and An Outraged Edinburgher (I wonder who that could be?) on Burke and Hare.
Our book reviews are from
John Croxon on John Ashdown-Hill’s The last days of Richard III
Bansari Mitra on Sir Walter Scott’s Kenilworth and Karen Baston on recent Scottish fiction by Shirley McKay (Hue and cry; Fate and fortune) and Shona Maclean (The redemption of Alexander Seaton; Game of Sorrows)
All that and the Summer Quiz!
The next Bulletin will be the last with our fine editor John Croxon at the helm. He’ll be standing down after creating twenty issues. If you would like to contribute to our twentieth issue, please send contributions to John Croxon. This special issue will appear this autumn.
The Society is in search of a new editor for the Bulletin. Please contact us at Birkbeck Early Modern Society if you would like to take on this role. If you would like to know more about how it all works contact John Croxon. Previous issues of the Bulletin are available here.
The Society is also seeking new officers and committee members to take it into an exciting new era in the next academic year. Current Birkbeck students are particularly welcome to get involved.
