Postgraduate Symposium — Call for Papers

Lambeth Palace Library

To mark the culmination of 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 and will close with a public lecture by Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch.

We would now like to invite proposals from PhD students and early career academics (within four years of gaining the PhD) for 20 minute papers on any aspect of the Reformation, although papers that consider the relationship between memory and any aspect of the European Reformations will be preferred. Interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged. Titles and abstracts of 100–200 words should be submitted with a short biographical note to by 29th March.

Registration for non-speakers will open in early September. The symposium will be free to attend and refreshments will be provided. Remembering the Reformation can provide 5 bursaries of £100 each to contribute to the travel expenses of selected speakers. If you would like to apply for one of these bursaries please send a statement of need with your paper proposal giving details about your circumstances and the importance of the symposium to your work.
