Durham Early Modern Conference

Durham EMC Call for Papers 2020

We welcome proposals for panels and strands from scholars interested in any aspect of the early modern period (c.1450 to c.1800).

The conference committee encourages panels which include papers from participants at a range of career stages.

The deadline for submissions of single papers, panels and strands is Friday 24 January 2020.

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.

Single Paper submissions are welcome. We will do our best to construct panels from single paper submissions; we are particularly encouraging submissions under the following themes, where we already have some interest:

  • Warfare and Diplomacy;
  • Eastern Europe;
  • Episcopal Residences;
  • Ethnography;
  • News Networks;
  • Capitalism;
  • Performance;
  • Music;
  • History of Medicine and Scientific Thought.

Submit a proposal for the Durham Early Modern Conference, 8-10 July 2020.
