The Ashmolean Museum is looking for Oxford scholars working on 17th Century research in the following areas: 

Civil War England
Royalists (17th C)
Elias Ashmole
History of Collecting

to take part in 15 minute Lectures, workshops, and/or talks next to an Ashmolean object. This is part of the 400th anniversary celebration of Elias Ashmole through a Civil War Era party with re-enactors and a new painting by William Dobson. 

Participants would need to be available for the LiveFriday on the 19th May “Mr Ashmole’s 400th birthday” and potentially needed for additional activity in October if participants are not available in May.

Deadline for expressions of interest is 1st May.
