Durham Early Modern Conference 2020

These interdisciplinary conferences on the early modern period are well established at Durham, first as a biennial conference on the seventeenth century, and more recently as a broader, annual early modern event.
The Durham Early Modern Studies Conference aims to build on this tradition, establishing an annual conference which will offer an inclusive interdisciplinary forum for discussion of the period c.1450 to c.1800.

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.
