Early Modern Exchanges


Early Modern English Reading Group (EMERG)

EMERG has been running two meetings every term in the Department of English Language and Literature since 2017.

In each meeting, we discuss a wide selection of extracts organised around a central theme, which we circulate in advance via our mailing list. Discussion is lively and informal; previous topics have included stones & statues, dreams, letters & letter-writing, gardens, insects, fake news and the female mind. All staff and students with an interest in the literature and history of the Renaissance in England and beyond are warmly invited to attend.

Please direct any questions or queries towards the Reading Group's organiser, Kate Kinley (catherine.kinley.19@ucl.ac.uk).
