New directions in the study of Jacobitism: A Colloquium at the Institute of Historical Studies, London, with the Jacobite Studies Trust.
20th August 2013.
Proposals are sought for a one-day colloquium on ‘New directions in the study of Jacobitism’ at the Institute of Historical Research, London, on 20th August 2013.
Proposals covering any aspect of Jacobite Studies are desired; including the military, political, diplomatic, religious and social history of Jacobitism, the history of Jacobite historiography, as well as the movement’s influence on contemporary and subsequent art, literature and culture. We are particularly interested in papers that suggest new approaches and forms of collaboration, that interrogate the notion of ‘Jacobite Studies’ as a discipline and its status in academia and wider culture, or that respond to the new challenges and opportunities for research brought about by the digitisation of archival material.
Professor Daniel Szechi (Manchester University) will be providing a keynote address and a roundtable discussion will be chaired by Dr Eveline Cruickshanks, (Chair of The Jacobite Studies Trust).
To register your interest to attend or to send an abstract (of no more than 300 words, with a bibliography of maximum 200 words including your name, institution and email address) for a 20 minute paper, please email email@example.com by 19th July 2013.
Suggested topics for the roundtable discussion and statements (of maximum 250 words) arguing to be a participant at the roundtable discussion should also be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 19th July 2013.
