CfP: The Northern Early Modern Network Annual Conference 2022 - 31 October



This event will be a hybrid event (details below).

We are pleased to announce that the second annual Northern Early Modern Network Conference will take place at Newcastle University on the 20th & 21st January 2022.

Following the outbreak of the pandemic, the move to online platforms instead of in-person events provided access to events that would have been inaccessible to PGRs for both geographical and financial reasons. In light of this, the convenors have decided that the conference will be a hybrid form, meaning that the panels will include in-person and online presentations. The two-day event will also be streamed via an online platform.

We are inviting postgraduate research students from anywhere in the world studying the early modern period to present a 20-minute paper on their research. The paper could be an overview of the project or one aspect of the research. Alternatively, papers on innovative research methodology in the field of early modern studies are also welcome.

Papers from any discipline are welcome.

We are delighted to confirm our two keynote speakers are Professor Sara Barker (Leeds University) and Professor Alec Ryrie (Durham University).

Please email a 250-word abstract, a brief biography (max 100 words) and indicate whether you would prefer to present in person or online, by the 31st October 2021, to Also please feel free to email Leanne if you have any queries.

The conference will be convened by Leanne Smith, Alex Collinson, Harriet Palin & Alex Plane.
