The Centre for Liverpool and Merseyside Studies (CLAMS) will host a conference on Friday, December 11 2009 to mark the bicentenary of the birth of William Ewart Gladstone. In keeping with the Centreís objective to foster interest in the regionís history and to uncover links between the area and elsewhere, this conference will not be restricted to papers based solely on W. E. Gladstone. Rather papers on any member of the family, their activities, and the context within which they operated are welcomed. Given the range of topics which this conference theme touches upon, work carried out in any discipline is encouraged. In order to understand the relationships between the Gladstone family and its milieu a range of influences have to be taken into consideration and related to one another. This conference provides a unique opportunity for researchers, whether experienced or postgraduate, to present, share and relate their work to other perspectives. Based in Liverpool, the conference will also enable delegates an opportunity to visit locations associated with the family and other attractions, such as the cityís museums and galleries.
Two books based on previous CLAMS conferences have been published, and a third is in press at present, and papers submitted at this conference will be considered for publication in an edited volume based on the conference proceedings. Abstracts, of no more than 200 words, should be sent to Dr Mike Benbough-Jackson at email@example.com by May 29 2009.
