Please join us for the sixth session in the University of Edinburgh’s Eighteenth-Century Research Seminar series. The session will present new work in eighteenth-century studies, with an emphasis on religion and religious imagery. The session will feature Kang-Po Chen (University of Edinburgh), who will discuss ‘The Archetypological Antithesis in William Blake’s America: A Prophecy (1793)’, and Josh Dight (University of York), whose paper is titled ‘“Let sound morality, and genuine Christianity be goals from which you commence your political career”: Religion in the Courtroom and Trial of Thomas Muir’.
All are welcome. Seminars are held at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, University of Edinburgh, from 4:30-6pm, and are followed by a drinks reception.
You can also follow the series on its twitter account @ECRS_Edinburgh. We’ll be live-tweeting the papers from that handle.
