The Aberdeen Centre for Early Modern Studies is holding an international conference on the long seventeenth century, from 20 to 22 July, 2006. The plenary speakers are Catherine Belsey, Peter Burke, and Annabel Patterson. We invite proposals for 20 minute papers on any aspect of British, American, or Continental literature, philosophy, culture, and history during the period of Stuart rule in Britain. They should be sent by email to the conference organizer, Professor Derek Hughes (e-mail address provided below), by 28 February, 2006. Every effort will be made to accommodate early applicants who require a decision before that date.
The University of Aberdeen, founded in 1495, is one of the most ancient British universities, and is the most northerly of the older ones. Aberdeen is situated on the North Sea coast, and a convenient point of departure for the Highlands and the Orkneys. The airport (with direct flights to London) is only five miles from the university, and there are direct trains to Edinburgh, Glasgow, and other Scottish cities. Its Centre for Early Modern Studies (http://www.abdn.ac.uk/cems) brings together distinguished early modern scholars in all the major disciplines, and fosters collaborative research in the fields of history, philosophy, literature, and the other arts. It is proud to welcome as its newest members Professor Janet Todd, Professor Robert Frost, and Dr Karin Friedrich.
