Research Lunch at the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, Friday March 1st, 12.30-2.00PM
Emily Mann of the Courtauld Institute of Art will be giving a paper entitled ‘Empire Builder: Christian Lilly in the Atlantic World 1688-1738’.
The spring programme of events at the Paul Mellon Centre includes a series of five research lunches, geared to doctoral students and junior scholars working on the history of British art and architecture. These research lunches, which will normally take place on alternate Fridays, are intended to be informal events in which individual doctoral students and scholars will talk for half-an-hour about their projects, and engage in animated discussion with their peers. A sandwich lunch will be provided by the Centre on these occasions. The hope is that this series, to be maintained in the summer and autumn, will help foster a sense of community amongst PhD students and junior colleagues working in the field, and bring researchers from a wide range of institutions together in a collegial and friendly atmosphere.
In order to help plan for these events, it is essential to check availability and let the Centre know which individual research seminars and research lunches you would like to attend, by emailing the Centre’s Events Co-ordinator, Ella Fleming, on efleming@paul-mellon- centre.ac.uk, at least two days in advance.
