In light of the continuing coronavirus pandemic, the Centre for Catholic Studies have had to take the decision to postpone this summer’s Early Modern British and Irish Catholicism (EMBIC) conference. We have been adhering to the University’s official guidance and, following meetings over the last couple of days, we have decided that it is best to make a decision now regarding the conference.
It is likely that, at the time in July when the conference was due to be held, restrictions will still be in place on travel and large gatherings. The EMBIC conferences are very deliberately international events and, rather than hold one with many people not able to attend, we would rather wait until, hopefully, we can all gather to discuss the topic.
If possible, it is hoped to run the conference in summer 2021, and an announcement will be made in due course.
