A roundtable workshop investigating the construction of loyalties and allegiances in early modern England. The workshop takes place 8/9 February 2007 (conference dinner 8 February, optional) at Blackburne House, University of Liverpool and speakers include James Daybell, Tim Harris, Anne McLaren, Matthew McCormack, Angela McShane-Jones, Howard Nenner, Edward Vallance, Andy Wood.
The workshop is jointly organised by Liverpool University and Oxford Brookes University and aims to broaden understanding in this area by,
i) focussing on how loyalties were constructed and displayed through speech, gesture, deportment, ritual and material consumption as well as looking at factors affecting allegiance;
ii) inviting a thorough-going investigation of the intellectual, social and cultural underpinnings of loyalism towards licit as well as illicit objects
iii)broadening the evidentiary base for examining allegiance to look beyond the current pre-occupation with political print to look at the significance of medical/scientific texts, conduct books, oral records and material culture in constructing the rhetorics and vocabularies of allegiance.
