This interdisciplinary conference for arts, humanities and social science postgraduates aims to explore historical and contemporary configurations of Britain. We aim to provide a supportive and friendly environment where postgraduates and those who have recently received their doctorates can gain experience in presenting their work and meeting fellow researchers. Questions to be addressed include:
How has Britishness been imagined in literature, popular culture and within the media?
What are the implications of changes to notions of national identity for the construction of Britain as a multi-cultural society?
How has Britishness been represented through material culture?
How has devolution affected political structures and national identities?
Proposals are invited on these topics or on work that interprets the conference theme more broadly. Proposals are invited for papers of 15-20 minutes and should include an abstrat and short CV.
