NEWTON:MILTON, TWO CULTURES?
22-25 July 2009
University of Sussex, Brighton, United Kingdom
Newton:Milton, Two Cultures? is an international conference hosted by the Newton Project (www.newtonproject.sussex.ac.uk), the Centre for Early Modern Studies, and the School of Humanities at the University of Sussex. The conference will bring together experts in the fields of English Literature, History of Science and general History to explore connections between the writing and thought of Newton and Milton and the social, political, theological and intellectual contexts in relation to either figure. We are especially keen to invite doctoral and postdoctoral students to give papers at the conference or to attend the conference.
Papers are welcomed under the following headings:
-Social, political, religious and intellectual contexts;
-Theology and heresy (especially regarding the Trinity, predestination and prophecy);
-Metaphysical and scientific beliefs;
-Attitudes to women, liberty and toleration;
-Relationship with the ‘occult’ traditions;
-Eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth century reputations;
-Literature and science;
-Religion and science.
Please, submit an abstract (250 words) online at http://www.newton-milton2009.sussex.ac.uk/conference by 31 May.
