Cambridge
This week, we will be looking at the links between the emergence of colonialism and imperialism and the emergence of the novel. We will be thinking about early prose works from the Renaissance period as well as later works which fall into the Long 18th Century. As always, no prior reading is necessary! Feel free to drop in and out!

This drop-in discussion group is a chance for English students (but all are welcome!) to tackle issues of race, colonialism, and empire that are so often pushed aside in the course. It's a friendly, student-run seminar with NO prior reading required. If you're an undergraduate student studying the Early Modern or Long 18th Century papers (or any paper!) then come along! We're all about free-form discussion and sharing ideas, perspectives, and even some of the work we've been doing. The goal of this group is to help students get to grips with these issues and to look at ways you can integrate them into your weekly work and the degree as a whole.

These sessions are aimed at sharing resources so that everyone has a comfortable starting point on these issues, one that's often hard to find from supervisors. We've put together a google drive so that everyone can contribute any resources (books, articles, videos, etc.) that they find useful or interesting. Like the last few times, everything we cover in the session will be available on the drive. You can access the drive here:

Come along!
