New Directions in Jacobite Studies

20 August 2013, 09:00

Event Type: Conference / Symposium


A colloquium on 'New Directions in Jacobite Studies' with the Jacobite Studies Trust taking place at the IHR on 20 August 2013.

Papers covering any aspect of Jacobite Studies are desired; including the military, political, diplomatic, religious and social history of Jacobitism, the history of Jacobite historiography, as well as the movement's influence on contemporary and subsequent art, literature and culture.  We are particularly interested in papers that suggest new approaches and forms of collaboration, that interrogate the notion of 'Jacobite Studies' as a discipline and its status in academia and wider culture, or that respond to new challenges and opportunities for research brought about by the digitalisation of archival material.

Professor Dan Szechi (University of Manchester) will be giving the plenary and the roundtable will be chaired by Professor Eveline Cruickshanks (Chair of the Jacobite Studies Trust).
