Conferences and yet more conferences!

Plenty of interesting conferences for early modern and eighteenth century types over the coming months…


Rediscovering radicalism in the British Isles and Ireland, c.1550–c.1700: Movements of people, texts and ideas, London, June 2006. “This interdisciplinary conference sets out to explore the role of migration and the exchange of ideas, images and texts in the history of [radical] events, ideologies and movements (or moments).” Deadline for proposals: 31 July 2005.

Metropolis and State in Early Modern Europe, London, March 2006. “The conference aims to investigate, from a comparative point of view, the peculiar relationship between European metropolises (not necessarily all serving as capital cites) and the central state during the early modern period.” Deadline: 31 July 2005.

The Twentieth Annual DeBartolo Conference: THE BOOK, Tampa, February 2006. Deadline: 30 September 2005.

Not particularly early modern, but I want to make a note of it to remind me to think about coming up with a proposal: Social History Society Annual Conference, Reading, March 2006. Deadline: 1 December 2005.

Conference notices

(De)materialising the early modern text: Early English Books Online in Teaching & Research, Bath, 8-9 September 2005. “The conference, the first to focus specifically on EEBO as a teaching and research tool, is aimed at anyone studying, teaching or researching the early modern period… or at anyone with an interest in the use of digital resources such as EEBO.”

Education and Culture in the Long 18th Century, Cambridge, 8-10 September 2005. (Notes that deadline for ‘applications’ was 10 May 2005, but you could see if you can still get in…)

Tudors and Stuarts on Film, London, 7-9 September 2005. (On 7 September “the conference will take place in the William III Banqueting Hall at Hampton Court.”) “Tudors and Stuarts on Film will be an interdisciplinary conference involving internationally recognised scholars from the fields of history and film studies.”

Port Histories: British Society and Maritime Culture, Bristol, 17 September 2005.

Ottoman and Atlantic Empires in the Early Modern World, Istanbul, 19-21 October 2005.

Renaissance Lives, London, 22 October 2005.

New Worlds Reflected: Representations of Utopia, the New World and Other Worlds 1500-1800, Birkbeck College, University of London, 9-10 December 2005. “The early modern period produced a wealth of travel writing, whether the travel in question was to the New World beyond the seas, a planet across the skies, or another imagined or idealised location. This conference will address the inter-related nature of utopia and travel-writing, and explore representations of other worlds from the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries. ”

Witchcraft and Masculinities in the Early Modern World, Colchester, 21-23 April 2006. “This international conference seeks to redress the balance within the gender debate by reconsidering masculinity and its place within the broadest possible context of the magical worlds of the early modern period.”

Royalist Capital and Commonwealth Melting-Pot: Oxford in the 1640s and 1650s, Oxford, 21-23 July 2006.

Exile in the English Revolution and its Aftermath, 1640-1685, London, 28-29 July 2006. “The conference will explore the experiences of and responses to exile and defeat in the years 1640-1680, with reference both to physical displacement and inner withdrawal, retreat and retirement.”

If I’ve missed anything interesting, get in touch. I’ll probably do another of these in the autumn, unless I come across any CFPs with urgent deadlines.


Celebrating Johnson’s Dictionary, Oxford, 26-28 August 2005.
