Anglo-German Doctoral Seminar in Early Modern Religious History


3–5 September 2018

Organizers: Bridget Heal (St Andrews), Thomas Kaufmann (Göttingen), Matthias Pohlig (Münster), and Michael Schaich (GHIL). With participation from Anselm Schubert (Erlangen), Alexandra Walsham (Cambridge), Jonathan Willis (Birmingham), and Markus Wriedt (Frankfurt).
Venue: German Historical Institute London
The Verein für Reformationsgeschichte (Society for Reformation History) and the German Historical Institute London (GHIL) are pleased to announce the first Anglo-German Doctoral Seminar in Early Modern Religious History.


The seminar will bring together junior scholars from Germany and the UK / Republic of Ireland. We plan to invite up to eight doctoral students from each region. The organizers welcome proposals on any aspect of the early modern religious history of the Holy Roman Empire, Britain or Ireland. Doctoral students working in related fields and disciplines – for example art history and literary studies – are encouraged to apply, as are students working on comparative projects. The discussions will be based on English-language papers submitted four weeks in advance, and the seminar will be conducted in English. The organizers will cover travel and lodging expenses.
