History seminars at the IHR
Education in the Long 18th Century
Time: Saturday 2.00-4.00pm
We aim to provide a relaxed forum for conversation and debate on all aspects of research into education during the long eighteenth century. To this end, we will explore a variety of modes of presentation as starting point for discussion and debate, from reading group led by an invited speaker, to papers and panels.
We expect contributions to be last between 25 to 40 minutes maximum, to allow for discussion, and we welcome papers-in-progress from all, especially graduate students who would like to air and share ideas. Most of all, we aim to provide a space for friendly and supportive discussion where everyone feels they can participate, and bring together researchers on eighteenth-century education dispersed throughout the British Isles and beyond.
