Dear Colleagues
 
As many of you will know, the Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies
at Bangor and Aberystwyth invites anyone interested in the years from 1660
to 1700, to beautiful Snowdonia every other year for three days of
discussion of the issues raised by the Restoration period in Britain and
Ireland, in any discipline. We have been working through the decades (the
1660s in 2005, and the 1670s in 2007) and next year will reach the
turbulent, but productive, 1680s. Slicker publicity, and information on how
to register, will follow in a couple of months: but for now here are some
details to whet your appetite, and let you pencil the event in your diary!
 
Date: Lunchtime Tuesday 28 July, 2009, to lunchtime Thursday 30 July.
 
Venue: Bangor University
 
Plenary Speakers:
 
Mark Goldie (Cambridge): The great purge: tory England in the 1680s Derek
Hughes (Aberdeen): Human sacrifice on the Restoration stage Sarah Hutton
(Aberystwyth): The lady vanishes: the posthumous fortunes of Ann Conway Mark
Knights (Warwick): Visual culture from the popish plot to the Sacheverell
trial Bob Owen (Open University): Defoe and dissent in the 1680s Steven
Pincus (Yale): The catholic modernity of James II
 
Panels:
 
Panels are coming together on topics such as the church, Scotland, Dryden,
Purcell, dissent, Mary II, Milton¹s posthumous reputation, the nature of the
1688 revolution: but we welcome suggestion for others. If you have an idea
for a panel of two to three 20 minute papers focussed on a theme, contact
the conference organisers: Tony Claydon t.claydon at bangor.ac.uk or Tom Corns
els009 at bangor.ac.uk
 
Look forward to seeing you here!
 
Tony Claydon and Tom Corns
