Postgraduate Workshop
Most research in medieval and early modern studies involves interdisciplinary work. Whether it be historians working with philosophers, scholars of literature working with classicists or some other combination, research in these fields often requires one to collaborate with and learn skills from scholars in cognate disciplines. This workshop will bring together leading scholars with extensive skills in interdisciplinary research in order to share their skills and experience with postgraduate students and early career researchers.

The Early Modern Thought Research Theme will be running the workshop in conjunction with ANZAMEMS.  Bursaries are available for
postgraduates and for early career researchers.  Facilitating the workshop will be Peter Marshall (Warwick), Peter Harrison (Queensland), Stephen Clucas (Birkbeck College), and John Sutton
