About this Event

This conference aims to bring together postgraduate, early career and leading scholars whose research considers the themes of gender and violence in the early modern world. It is concerned with aspects of early modern history and literature including, but not limited to: domestic and sexual violence; religious violence; crime and punishment; warfare and martial violence; violent spectacle and performance; colonial violence; and urban violence.

We are delighted to to be welcoming Professor Jane Ohlmeyer (TCD) as our keynote speaker, who will address the conference with her research on 'Widows in Seventeenth-Century Ireland'.

This conference to build both conceptual bridges between topics of gender and violence, and practical ones between their respective research communities. By asking how gender governs representations, experiences, and meanings of violent episodes in the past, we hope that this conference will offer its participants an opportunity to find common ground and consider new directions.

Registration for this conference is free. Dinner at Zizzi's is at the cost of the attendee. Please select a 'General Admission + Conference Dinner Reservation' ticket if you would like to come to dinner with us.
