From the Modern British History Network:

Conference on Modern British History: Society, Culture, Politics and Religion since 1750
University of Edinburgh, 10-11 June 2013

Proposals due by 6 May 2013

Following the success of the conferences held at Strathclyde (2007-2009), at St Andrews in 2010, at Dundee in 2011, and at Stirling in 2012, the Modern British History Network will host a seventh major Conference on Modern British History at New College, University of Edinburgh, on 10-11 June 2013. The event is particularly aimed at members of the Scottish universities and the northern English universities although all historians are very welcome. Previous conferences have attracted delegates from across the UK and from overseas.

Proposals for papers or registration to attend the event are now invited from researchers working on all aspects of modern British history. The conference aims to represent work covering the whole period since the late eighteenth century with topics in social, cultural, political and religious history. Proposals should be submitted by 6 May 2013 to Dr Juliette Pattinson (juliette.pattinson@strath.ac.uk). Over two days there will be three main papers from senior academics and short papers by other academics and postgraduates, who are equally welcome to speak.

Fifteen B&B places are available at Pollock Halls at a special discounted rate: please contact Cullen Clark, cullentclark@hotmail.com with enquiries. Once these are filled, additional B&B accommodation at Pollock Halls may be made though the on-line booking service (enter promotion code: MBHN13). We are able to offer some bursaries to Scottish-based postgraduate students (see website for details). Our confirmed keynote speakers this year are:

  • Professor David Brown (University of Southampton)
  • Dr Louise Jackson (University of Edinburgh)
  • Professor Brian Stanley (University of Edinburgh)

The conference is part of the Modern British History Network, established in 2007 at the Universities of Strathclyde and Stirling. The Network aims to serve as a means of communication and a focal point for those working in the field of modern British history, supporting both postgraduates and established scholars in new collaborative research projects. The Network is supported by the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland. This year we are pleased to be generously co-sponsored by the Divinity School of the University of Edinburgh. For further information or any queries, please contact: Cullen Clark, University of Stirling postgraduate student, on cullentclark@hotmail.com.
