Early Modern Global History Seminar Series at Georgetown

Dear Early Modern Colleagues,

I have organized a new seminar series for the coming year at Georgetown on early modern global history. I am attaching our schedule for the year and also pasting it in below. I hope that some of you will be able to take part. Please let me know if you would like me to add you to the seminar email list. All seminar papers will be circulated in advance. If you know of graduate students who might be interested in taking part, please share this message with them or pass their email addresses along to me. Many thanks, and I hope to see some of you soon.
