Postgraduate Symposium

The face defaced
Lambeth Palace Library

Registration now open!

To mark its third year, the AHRC-funded research project Remembering the Reformation (Prof. Alex Walsham, PI, Prof. Brian Cummings, CI) will hold a day-long POSTGRADUATE SYMPOSIUM in association with the Ecclesiastical History Society, The Church of England Record Society and Lambeth Palace Library, on the 25th October 2018. The symposium will take place at Lambeth Palace Library, will include a roundtable discussion with Professors Euan Cameron, Brian Cummings, Mary Laven, Diarmaid MacCulloch, and Alex Walsham, and will close with a public lecture by Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch, provisionally entitled ‘Matters Overlooked: Straightening out the Story of the Reformation’.

The symposium is intended to provide an opportunity for PhD students and early career academics (within four years of gaining the PhD) to share the fruits of their research in progress and gain feedback. We are keen to showcase new and interdisciplinary approaches to the European Reformations and their longer term legacies in the context of enduring historiographical traditions about these movements, as well as to consider a range of ways in which the theme of memory (broadly conceived) offers an illuminating new prism through which to investigate this topic.
