Reading Group Prompts

Our next reading group is on 22nd June at 3.30pm (BST). We will be repeating our successful ‘Bring a Problem’ format, as suggested by Emily Smith and lead by Lily Freeman-Jones.

Instead of our usual Reading Group, this month we are having another ‘bring a problem’ session. In this session, each person has 5-15 minutes (depending on how many people turn up!) to discuss a problem that has been puzzling them in their research and we can all respond with suggestions and solutions. For example:

  • How do I reference [insert crazy thing here]?
  • Does anyone know anything about [early modern music/werewolves/obscure point of law]?
  • Which research databases are useful for x…?
  • Does this sentence/paragraph in my writing make sense?

If you would like to send your problems in advance – either for someone else to read out (anonymously or no!) or to get a first opinion – please feel free to email us. We hope that this session will be a very relaxed and friendly, albeit slightly Poirot-esque, brainstorming and, hopefully, successful solution-finding space!

If you’d like to join us, please contact for the Zoom link. For a monthly reminder of upcoming reading groups, you can sign up to our mailing list.
