The Wars of the 1640s and 1650s in Britain: Interdisciplinary Approaches

The Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in the Arts (CIDRA) at the University of Manchester is presenting a series of events in 2007 entitled ‘The Wars of the 1640s and 1650s in Britain: Interdisciplinary Approaches’. Four scholars of the period will be delivering research papers and leading a postgraduate masterclass.

The lecture series is intended to stimulate debate regarding the deployment of an interdisciplinary approach to the 1640s and 1650s; indeed, it is designed to both interrogate the value of such an approach as well as to suggest ways that interdisciplinarity might be developed and fostered.

We will be advertising the lecture series in due course but for the moment this is to let you know about the arrangements for the postgraduate events.

The postgraduate masterclasses will take place in the afternoon of the following dates:

7 March, Sharon Achinstein
Subject tbc

9 May, Blair Worden
‘John Milton and the English Republic'

16 May, Ann Hughes
‘Gendering the English Revolution’

23 May, Martin Dzelzainis
‘Milton and Sir Henry Vane’

The events are open but space is limited and places must be booked. If you would like to reserve a place for your students please contact me (details below). Please circulate this email to anyone you feel will be interested.
