The Loyalty to the British Monarchs, c. 1400-1688 Conference will take place on Wednesday 24 January 2018 with keynote speaker, Dr David Appleby.
The theme of loyalty can be found in the Parliament rolls, in manuscript illustration, on sculpture, in ceremony and in music and drama. Yet there were tensions: a variety of interpretations were proposed regarding the nature and bounds of loyalty; the worst case scenario for the monarch was deposition.
This conference aims to explore ideas and images relating to all aspects of loyalty to the English and Scottish monarchs from the late-medieval period to the Glorious Revolution. Themes to be addressed can include, but are not limited to:
Abstracts for papers (20 mins) on any aspect of loyalty to the English and Scottish crown are encouraged from PhD candidates, early career researchers and established academics.
Please send abstracts of no more than 150 words to either of the conference convenors Dr Matthew Ward or Matthew Hefferan by 15 September 2017.
It is anticipated that a proceedings of the conference will be published in due course.
