    Event synopsis: This event is designed to challenge and rethink existing ideas about the ‘social margins’. It is not designed to be all-encompassing in terms of the groups considered. Instead, it is structured around key themes: health, family life, the law and work. The papers presented will consider seemingly very different groups, in the context of early modern Britain, Europe and the Atlantic World. The hope is that over the course of the two days we will be able to identify similarities in perception and treatment between these groups. There are two basic questions which all of the papers will address: In terms of perceptions, how ‘fixed’ was the label of marginality? Was it applied cyclically, temporarily or manipulated by individuals? In terms of treatment, were these groups physically marginalised within urban or rural environments?
