Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the annual BSECS Postgraduate and Early Career Researcher conference cannot go ahead as planned. However, we are still keen to provide a platform for postgraduates and early career researchers in eighteenth-century studies to get together and present their research. Therefore, we proudly present this new monthly digital seminar series:
Last Thursday of each month, 3-4PM. Currently the sessions are running until November, with a view to extend with a further CFP if successful.
Sessions take place via Zoom and are aimed specifically at postgraduate and early career researchers. Registration details will be released here: https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bsecs.org.uk%2Fconferences%2Fpostgraduate-early-career-conference%2F&data=02%7C01%7CC.Franklin%40Swansea.ac.uk%7Ca2f05d073d2248f1c87108d832e45659%7Cbbcab52e9fbe43d6a2f39f66c43df268%7C0%7C1%7C637315303563203840&sdata=AJBx413qBQG83Tm0i8VdWQJwS4de74uQD6gTDeUezSQ%3D&reserved=0
