Durham Centre for Seventeenth-Century Studies Twelfth Annual Conference
'Friends and Enemies: Collaboration and Conflict in the Seventeenth Century'
13-16 July 2009
Durham Castle, Durham, England
This year's four-day conference explores the themes of collaboration and conflict in a number of contexts and geographical locations. Speakers include representatives of universities in America, Canada, Taiwan, Ireland, Japan, Russia, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Australia, France, and Finland, as well as the UK.
The Centre for Seventeenth-Century Studies organizes major biennial conferences, held in the magnificent setting of Durham Castle. The programme consists of around 50 papers, and the total attendance is always well in excess of a hundred scholars, from a very wide range of disciplines, the majority of whom come to Durham from beyond the United Kingdom. These conferences have been an established feature of the international scholarly scene since 1985. The emphasis is deliberately multi- and inter-disciplinary, with papers displaying a full range of methodological approaches and spanning national and disciplinary boundaries.
A full range of catering and accommodation packages is available, with costs heavily subsidised for postgraduates. There will be complementary wine receptions on Monday 13th and Wednesday 15th July, and a conference dinner (available at approximately £25, exact price to be confirmed) on the Wednesday evening. There is no charge to attend the papers, but it would be very helpful if those wanting to attend could send fill in a booking form even if accommodation and refreshments are not required (simply to help estimate numbers). However, there is no charge to attend the papers.
