Early Modern Discussion Group Seminar: Richard Blakemore

Richard Blakemore (History, Oxford)

 ‘Pieces of eight, pieces of eight: the venture economy of early modern seafaring’

Chair: Helen Churcher
December 1

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.

For the Autumn 2014 term, all EMDG meetings will be in the Humanities Research Institute on Gell Street, in the Seminar Room, and will run from 4:15-6pm. All welcome!
