Tom Leng, Disorderly Brethren: The Fellowship of Merchant Adventurers and the Restructuring of Anglo-European Commerce, 1582-1689
18 October, 2018 @ 1:05 pm - 1:50 pm
This talk will discuss the development of Dr Tom Leng’s (History) current book project, on the merchant company known as the Fellowship of Merchant Adventurers during its last century as a privileged institution. He will discuss how and why he came to be interested in this subject, how he has sought to approach it, and some of his conclusions about the importance of this particular trading company to the larger changes that England’s overseas trade underwent in this period.
