The Second International John Thelwall Society Conference, 21-23 July 2017

John Thelwall: Radical Networks and Cultures of Reform 1780-1820

The Second International John Thelwall Society Conference will be taking place at the University of Derby over the weekend of 21-23 July 2017.  All the conference panels will take place at 1 Friargate Square, which is part of the University of Derby campus and home to the Derby Law School.  Located in the city centre, this building offers modern, well-equipped meeting and seminar rooms and IT facilities.

We have a fascinating programme of speakers, events, archival visits, and an optional conference dinner, all taking place over a packed weekend in this historic part of Derby.  We are encouraging all our delegates to become members of the John Thelwall Society.  Members of the society will be eligible for a reduced conference rate.
