Early Europe Research Forum
The University of Melbourne, Thursday 13–Friday 14 December 2007
Venue: Theatre D, Old Arts (building 149 on the campus map)
Supported by the ARC Network for Early European Research (NEER)
The aims of the Forum are to draw together those researching various aspects of "Early Europe" (5th to early 19th century) in the city and region of Melbourne; to inform each other and reflect on ongoing research activities across different disciplines and in different institutions in the Melbourne region; to promote a climate for networking, exploiting our resources more effectively and exploring collaboration.
Professor Lyndal Roper of the University of Oxford, co-editor of Past and Present, also a Professorial Fellow of the University of Melbourne, will participate as a commentator and deliver a public lecture on the evening of Thursday 13 December titled 'The Fat Doctor: Martin Luther and Biography' (co-sponsored by the School of Historical Studies).
There is the opportunity for those who cannot attend to post short statements describing their research, or information about ongoing seminars and publication projects in the Melbourne region. If you would like to take up this opportunity, please email Jenny Spinks (email@example.com) a one-page document suitable for printing out in black and white and pinning on a noticeboard.
There will be a nominal registration fee for the Forum at a per-day rate of $10 unwaged and $20 waged, payable on arrival at the Forum. This will cover morning and afternoon tea and a light lunch.
A dinner will be held at Café Italia in Carlton on the evening of Thursday 13, after the public lecture by Lyndal Roper. The cost will be under $40 per head, excluding wine. Please let Anne Brumley (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you plan to attend.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the Forum in December. Please forward these details to all those who might be interested.
