Birkbeck Early Modern Society

Stephen Brogan writes ...

Dear Early Modernist,

Details for your diaries of our next two events.

20 May: Dr Carmen Fracchia, ‘Slavery and Visuality in Imperial Spain: The Miracle of the Black Leg’, 6.30 pm, Clore 101.

Dr Fracchia works in the Department of Iberian and Latin American Studies at Birkbeck, and is an expert on early modern Spanish art. She last spoke to the society in January 2007, when she discussed Velasquez and his painting of his slave, and she is currently writing a monograph entitled Black but Human: Slavery and Visual Culture in Imperial Spain (15th to 18th centuries).

Our end of term lecture has now been finalized and is as follows.

23 June: Professor Stuart Carroll (University of York) 'The Duel', 6.30 pm, room B36, Malet Street; followed by our end of year party in room B02, Malet Street. Professor Carroll works on the political, social and cultural history of early modern France, and has published widely on violence and vengeance.

I look forward to seeing you at these exciting lectures!

Best wishes

Stephen Brogan
