Call for Papers

Thomas Browne and Seventeenth Century Intellectual Culture

The Thomas Browne Seminar

We are pleased to announce the first session of The Thomas Browne Seminar, a
joint project between Birkbeck College, University of London and Exeter
University. Browne was a significant figure in the intellectual landscape of
the mid seventeenth century, but has come to be seen, in many accounts, as
a "quaint" and retiring figure, withdrawn from the mainstream of political
and intellectual life. The seminar aims to explore and restore the significance
of Browne across the numerous fields which occupy his writing.

We will be holding our first meeting, to discuss Sir Thomas Browne and his
contemporaries on Saturday 8th April 2006 at Birkbeck College and would like
to invite proposals for papers on any aspect of Browne's works and
context.

An initial expression of interest, a.s.a.p. would be appreciated, for funding
purposes. Abstracts by 1st July.
