Trinity College: Forum for the Study of Early Modern Women in Continental Europe

Trinity College Dublin
The Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies
Interdisciplinary Colloquium:
Thursday 2nd – Friday 3rd September 2010

In celebration of the launch of the Forum for the Study of Early Modern Women in Continental Europe, a two-day Colloquium will be held at Trinity College Dublin on Thursday 2nd – Friday 3rd September 2010.* The Forum is committed to supporting collaborative and individual research on the early modern women of Continental Europe. This encompasses the creative output of early modern women, their depiction in literary and artistic works, and their socio-historic contexts.  The Forum is designed to cross both disciplinary and geographical boundaries. It is intended that a collection of articles inspired by the Colloquium proceedings will be published, subject to peer review.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to popular demand, the Colloquium has been extended to include Thursday 2nd September (afternoon only). Papers of 20 minutes’ duration, in English, are invited from across the disciplines. Should you be interested in participating in this Colloquium, please send a short abstract (200 words) of your proposed contribution to Dr Eavan O’Brien (Forum Coordinator),, by Friday 21st May 2010.
