The Material and Visual Culture of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries Research Cluster is pleased to announce that the Material and Visual Culture Seminar Series (MVCS) will be continuing for a fifth year. We therefore invite proposals for twenty-minute papers from PhD candidates, early-career researchers, and cultural heritage professionals addressing any aspect of material and visual culture studies.  
The seminars aim to explore a wide variety of themes, and localities within the long seventeenth and eighteenth centuries (broadly defined) to foster methodological and interdisciplinary dialogue. Topics might include but are not limited to: object or subject case studies, material/visual culture and identity especially with respect to marginalized peoples or communities, material/visual culture and literature, craft, consumer cultures, global ‘things’, etc. 

Please submit a title and abstract of no more than 250 words, with a short biography (about 100 words) to by 31 July.  
The seminars are scheduled for Wednesday evenings online, at 5pm BST/GMT fortnightly throughout semester one of the 23/24 academic year.
