The Canada Milton Seminar

The aim of the Canada Milton Seminar is to provide a focus in the form of an annual meeting for scholars, especially Canadian scholars, working not only on Milton but on early modern literature and culture in general. At the annual general meeting, held after each seminar, members share ideas on how the CMS can continue to develop. Lunch is served to all registrants, and the gathering ends with a banquet. For more information about the seminar, please contact Professor Paul Stevens.
