Upcoming RHS Events
RHS Symposium at Nottingham Trent University
5 September 2019
Charity, Welfare and Emotions in Early Modern Britain and Ireland
A symposium exploring the relationship between the emotions and experiences of charity and welfare. Recent scholarship on welfare and poor relief has foregrounded the experiences of poor people and those in need of care. At the same time, the history of emotions is an exciting and rapidly expanding field which offers new ways of approaching and conceptualising historical study itself. This Symposium aims to encourage dialogue between the two fields. All welcome to attend; please register by 10 August. More details here.
