CEAS Research Seminars

This week sees the start of the Centre of East Anglian Studies research seminar series. The series kicks off on Thursday 8th November with a paper by Margaret Bird on ‘Drunkenness and Debt: the struggle of Norfolk innkeepers under the brewer’s yokr 1770-1810’. Margaret’s research is based largely on the detailed diaries of Mary Hardy, a brewer’s wife from Coltishall in Norfolk.

A more detailed synopsis of the paper, and more information on the Mary Hardy project itself is available on the project website.

The seminar will take place on Thursday, at 6:30pm in Room 2.16 of the Arts II building at the UEA – all are very welcome to attend.
