“Elizabeth I and Ireland”
Thursday – Saturday, 12–14 November 2009
University of Connecticut, Storrs
This conference aims to bring together a diverse range of historians and literary scholars to explore both Elizabeth I’s direct role in the shaping of Irish policy and the ways in which Irish events and people affected her political style.
Issues that we hope will be addressed by speakers and commentators include the following:
• Elizabeth I’s intervention in the administrative and military affairs of Ireland;
• Her relationship with her military commanders and viceroys in Ireland;
• Her role in––and views of––the violence that increasingly marked the English presence in Ireland;
• Her policies effecting religious change;
• Her interest in the mytho-historical origins of the Irish and their culture;
• The extent to which she considered Ireland kingdom or colony; and
• Irish views of Elizabeth I.
We welcome proposals on these or other subjects from historians, literary scholars, and those working in related fields. Proposals of no more than 300 words should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline: May 1, 2009.
