Early Modern Discussion Group: ‘Religion’: Inaugural ‘Windows into Research’

Emma Rhatigan (English), Antony Milton (History), and Iona Hine (Biblical Studies)

The Early Modern Discussion Group (EMDG) is a postgraduate led group for the circulation and discussion of ideas about early modern history. We have a variety of speakers each semester who generally give 20 minute papers, with two speakers in each session, though sometimes we have just one speaker who will present a longer paper. We sometimes also have reading sessions where we discuss a recent journal article.
