Please join us for the seventh session in the University of Edinburgh’s Eighteenth-Century Research Seminar series. The session will present new work in eighteenth-century studies, with a focus on British politics during this period. The session will feature Alastair Noble (University of Edinburgh) whose paper is titled ‘“The Power of the Highlands”: Rivalries within the Whig Government and the Response to the ’45’, and Dr Philip Loft (University College London), who will discuss ‘Making and Judging Law in a Composite State: Scottish Appeals to the House of Lords during the Eighteenth Century’.
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.
