The March meeting of the North East Forum in Eighteenth-Century and Romantic Studies will be held on Friday 9 March, from 3-5pm. This time it is hosted by Northumbria University and will be held in the Lipman Building, Room 121, which appears as building number 15 on the campus map.
In the first hour, Adam Smith (Sheffield), will give a paper entitled '“Sir, executions are intended to draw spectators”: Text as Spectacle in the Ordinary of Newgate's Accounts'. After the break, NENC member Helen Stark (Newcastle) will give a paper entitled '“Nation [as] moral essence, not ... geographical arrangement”: Burke's hierarchies of inclusion and exclusion in the 1790s'.
For more information about the Forum, see this previous post. The Forum is always a great opportunity to meet and socialise with researchers working in the North East, with sessions normally concluding in the pub. We hope to see many of you there.
