CFP | ‘The Jacobite presence’, 4th international conference on Jacobite studies, 30 June – 1 July 2017

Call for papers for the 4th international conference on Jacobite studies, National University of Ireland Maynooth (Maynooth University), Ireland, 30 June – 1 July 2017.

‘The Jacobite presence’.

Over the last 30 years, the study of the Jacobites and Jacobitism has expanded from the traditional areas of military and political history to cover areas such as industry, finance, migration history, the history of ideas and ideology. This conference aims to maintain this momentum and hopefully to open new areas of study.

Proposals in the following areas will be particularly welcome: industry and the economy; the Jacobite diaspora in Iberia and in the Americas; religious and educational institutions; gender and women’s history; music, song, literature and art. Innovative papers in the more ‘traditional’ areas of Jacobite studies will also be welcome.

Proposals of 250-300 words for papers of 25-30 minutes length on these and other aspects of Jacobite history 1685-1800, and a short biographical note should be submitted to no later than the 29th March 2017. Students currently enrolled for doctoral studies are welcome to present on their research and can apply for support to the Jacobite Trust. Proposals in the following languages will be accepted: English, French, Irish. These will then be reviewed by an expert committee.

Note that a small number of rooms on the historic south campus of Maynooth are still available. Those wishing to book a room of this type are advised to contact the above email address at an early stage for further details.
