This report provides an overview of the second international doctoral students Study Day on freemasonry, detailing the presentations of promising PhD projects currently being undertaken. The subjects covered are: freemasonry in eighteenth-century India, and nineteenth-century Mauritius; the notion of secrecy among freemasons in twentieth-century Britain; musicology and nineteenth-century freemasonry, the complex rhetoric of Dudley Wright (1868–1949); the masonic life and times of Hippolyto Joseph Da Costa (1772–1823). Those presenting papers represent a cross-section of the doctoral experience, from just beginning the doctoral journey to having just completed it. The range of material discussed demonstrates the richness and vitality of the subject.
