The Birkbeck Early Modern Society is pleased to announce its first two events of the academic year.
Thurs 20 October 2011: Dr Jenny Wormald, ‘Godly myth, ungodly reality: the Scottish Reformation’, 43 Gordon Sq, room G03.
This promises to be a memorable night as Dr Wormald is an expert on early modern Scotland who is renowned for her revisionist interpretation of James VI and I. Unfortunately, the only room available on this night is G03 which does not hold more than about 30 people, so this event is strictly first come first served. Arrive early to be sure of getting in!
Fri 16 Dec: The Barry Coward Memorial Lecture. Prof. John Morrill, ‘What do we really know about Oliver Cromwell?’, Malet St B35, followed by Xmas party in G15.
This Christmas we have our first Barry Coward Memorial Lecture, and we hope that this will be come an Early Modern Society tradition. Again, this promises to be an excellent event as Prof. Morrill is an acclaimed historian of the Stuart age, and Barry Coward thought highly of his work, so there is no one better to give the first Memorial Lecture.
Membership for the academic year remains a steal at £5, and can be obtained at any of our events; alternatively you can attend single lectures for a fee of £3 each.
Further details of the rest of our academic programme will be sent out and published on the web soon.
