Early Modern Biblical Studies Workshop (EMBerS)

 Monday 2 July, 2018. 1:30pm—4:00pm. 

This event represents the first gathering of an emergent network for scholars interested in early modern biblical studies. It precedes the main Society for Renaissance Studies conference (3-5 July, Sheffield), where we will offer papers in two panels (20 & 27). Workshop participation is free but places are limited and advance registration is required.

Organised by Dr Iona Hine in association with Sheffield Institute for Interdisciplinary Biblical Studies (SIIBS), Sheffield Centre for Early Modern Studies (SCEMS), and the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Printing (SHARP).

Funding: This event is supported by a SHARP Lightning Seed grant. Early Career Researchers* are invited to apply for a small subsidy to cover the costs of participation (e.g. travel or overnight accommodation). You should indicate whether you wish to apply for this scheme when registering. *Preference for this support may be given to those currently outside secure long-term employment or funded study, or otherwise ineligible for financial support from their academic institution. 

Venue: Humanities Research Institute, The University of Sheffield, S3 7QY.
