Event description

Description

This colloquium is a one-day interdisciplinary and cross-period event. Its focus is on the use, writing and reception of History in early modern Britain and Ireland, and the relationship between history and collective and ‘public’ memories, the construction of national, regional, political and religious identities, and the interdependence of history with custom and social practices.  The fields of memory studies and the history of history-writing have attracted much scholarly interest in recent years, together with scrutiny of the practices of commemoration and ‘public history’. These themes provide the core questions for this colloquium.
