Court Studies Seminar Series

Interdisciplinary in approach, this seminar series will explore the political and cultural significance of courts in the Early Modern period, broadly defined. The intention is to connect the many scholars working on related fields at Oxford, and to hear from speakers on subjects including diplomacy, hunting, patronage, dynastic marriage, court entertainment, and cultural transfer between nations, confessions, and courts; throughout Europe and globally.

Seminars will take place on alternate Mondays, odd weeks, at 16:30 in the Memorial Room, Jesus College, unless otherwise specified.

This series is open to all members of the Oxford community and the public.
