This year’s conference features sessions and a book exhibit celebrating the long and continuing success of the book series affiliated to the Early Modern Research Centre at Reading, Early Modern Literature in History. Its founding editor and current co-editor Cedric Brown began the series in 1997 in association with the high-profile international Literature and History conferences inaugurated at that time. The list has now grown to more than 60 titles and includes the work of scholars from many countries.
The 2013 conference programme includes two sessions sponsored by EMILH, one chaired by Cedric Brown, the other by Andrew Hadfield (the other current co-editor), both sessions built around recent work published in the series. EMLIH is also in collaboration with the Australian research group, Early Modern Women Research Network (EMWRN), associated with several recent and forthcoming volumes in the series and the sponsor of a series of sessions at the conference.
There will be a book display dedicated to the series, showing not just current and recent titles but the whole range going back to the founding titles in 1997. The co-editors wish to thank Palgrave-Macmillan for their co-operation in mounting this display.
