North West Seminar

The North West Early Modern Seminar is a research group for history students and academics interested in History of the Early Modern period.

The group was established in 2012 by the Universities of Manchester, Liverpool, Keele, Lancaster, Leeds, Chester, MMU and Huddersfield.  The group will run several research seminars during 2016/17 to allow both students and academics to share their research interests and work.

Participants in the research group have interests which span all aspects of Early Modern History - from printed texts and witchcraft, to naval history and colonialism.
