The University of Southampton and the British Commission for Military History are holding the fourth Wellington Congress from 8 to 11 July 2010. The University's Hartley Library is the home of the first Duke's archive, and the meeting will include opportunities to see the collection, to hear the latest in Wellington scholarship and to visit sites associated with the Duke and the Napoleonic Wars.
Proposals are invited for papers on all aspects of the career of the first Duke of Wellington, as well as the wider context in Britain, Ireland, the Empire and Continental Europe, between 1780 and the mid-nineteenth century. Papers that draw on material relating to the wars in the Peninsula will be especially welcome. Proposals (up to 250 words) should be submitted to Archives@soton.ac.uk by 16 October 2009. Papers should not exceed 30 minutes in length.
