On Thursday 17 March the Renaissance Graduate Seminar will be hosting a
one-day symposium to showcase the research of the faculty's final-year
Renaissance PhD students. Professor Brian Cummings (University of Sussex)
will act as invited external respondent.
Papers will range across such subjects as history of the book, religion,
classical influence, music, film adaptation, and the recreation of the
past. Speakers are Joanna Bellis, Sheldon Brammall, Simon Jackson, Alison
Knight, Lucy Razzall, Dunstan Roberts, Simon Ryle and Harriet Phillips.

faculty's social space. Lunch, tea and coffee will be provided. Attendees
