Further Ways to Engage with the GPP
Alongside the ambitious digitization programme, a series of academic fellowships, sponsored by the partnering institutions, are furthering research into the Georgian period. Seminars, lectures, teaching sessions, media programmes and publishing projects will also follow, and it is hoped that these many facets of the GPP will transform the understanding of Georgian Britain and its monarchy at a time of such great cultural, political, economic and social change, which has shaped the world we live in today.
