History Graduate Conference: 'Beliefs Under Pressure: Religion, Community and Identity in the Early Modern World'

Thursday 10 September 2015, Julian Study Centre

The School of History will be hosting a one day conference for graduate students and early career researchers to present papers and exchange ideas about the social and cultural history of religion and community, c. 1500-1800. The conference is intended to provide an informal forum for emerging researchers to discuss the varied modes of communication across the period, and different ways in which identities were formed, contested and transformed. With the establishment of collaborative research links in mind, both speakers and attendees are welcome to this event providing prior notice to the conference organisers has been given.

The event will run 9:30-17:00, with coffee and lunch provided.
