Durham Early Modern Studies Conference 2019
Durham University, Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies
Monday 22 July – Wednesday 24 July 2019
Call for Papers
Deadline for submissions: Sunday 30 September 2018
An interdisciplinary conference on the early modern period is well established at Durham, first as a biennial conference on The Seventeenth-Century, and more recently as a broader Early Modern event.
The 2019 Durham Early Modern Studies Conference aims to build on this tradition, establishing an annual conference which will offer a broad and inclusive interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of the period c.1450 to c.1800.
We therefore welcome proposals for panels, strands and seminars from scholars interested in any aspect of the early modern period.
