Friday, March 23rd, 2018 at the University of Sheffield

For the third year running, the Early English Drama & Performance Network (EED&PN) hosted a postgraduate and early career symposium. During the course of the day the participants partook in sessions that covered topics specifically tailored for doctoral and early-career researchers in medieval and early modern drama.

Session topics included research and public engagement, practice-based research, possibilities of Digital Humanities, and a hands-on workshop on palaeography and manuscript studies. Scholars, researchers, and professionals who have successfully researched, produced, and taught early drama led the sessions and the symposium concluded with an open space session that will allow participants to continue to discuss the day’s topics and the future of the field. The speakers included Michael Pidd (University of Sheffield), Toni Prince (University of Sheffield), Kia Macpherson (Hull Noah Play Project), Stuart Palmer (University of Kent), and Olivia Robinson (University of Fribourg).
