We are delighted to announce that the call for papers for the Durham Early Modern Conference 8-10 July 2020 is now open. The deadline for submissions is Monday 11 November 2019. Please see the IMEMS web pages for more information about the 2020 Conference.

Call for papers

We welcome proposals for panels and strands from scholars interested in any aspect of the early modern period (c.1450 to c.1800) and particularly encourage panels which include papers from participants at a range of career stages.

Panel proposals should comprise at least three papers. The usual panel structure is three papers, each lasting 20 minutes, with thirty minutes dedicated to discussion (90 minutes in total). Panels may also consist of four papers, each lasting 15 minutes, with the whole session being delivered within the 90-minute slot.

Strand proposals: The conference organisers strongly encourage the submission of proposals for strands which will run through the conference. These should generally comprise at least two and no more than five related panels.
