Sedition: Subversive and Controversial Literature in Europe, 1500-1700

5th July 2017, 14:30 to 6th July 2017, 17:00, Seminar Room, Cosin's Hall, Durham University

Organised by John O'Brien and Marc Schachter

Early modern Europe saw a sharp rise in the production, circulation and consumption of literature that was usually described by its opponents as 'seditious', a term which could cover anything from critical and oppositional writing to inflammatory works and pamphlets advocating tyrannicide and even regicide. The purpose of this workshop is to study the production, nature and circulation of such literature in its European dimension.

Conference Fee: £20.00 (includes refreshments on both days and lunch on the second day)
