The Venetian Seminar is a peripatetic one-day workshop which has a long history of bringing together scholars of history, art history, literature and linguistics who study Venice and Italy. It is convened on a yearly basis by Alex Bamji (Leeds), Filippo de Vivo (Birkbeck), and Mary Laven (Cambridge). The Seminar brings together established scholars, early career researchers, and postgraduate students in a format designed to promote awareness of the latest research in the field, and to maximise discussion. This year’s seminar is hosted by Sandra Cavallo, Jane Everson and Stefano Jossa. We are grateful for the support of the Humanities and Arts Research Centre and the Centre for the Study of the Body and Material Culture, Royal Holloway, University of London.

There is no registration fee, and refreshments will be provided. Due to the limited capacity of the venue, please email a.bamji@leeds.ac.uk if you plan to attend. ALL WELCOME.
