THE MAKING OF A MONARCHY FOR THE MODERN WORLD
Call for papers for a conference at Kensington Palace, to be held on 6, 7 and 8 June, 2012
Our big theme is monarchy and its relationship to the modern world. Monarchs were originally supposed to be men, and gods, and have undisputedly royal blood. Since 1688, though, this clearly hasn’t been the case in Britain.
Yet Britain’s is the world’s most prominent monarchy surviving today. In 1688, 1714, 1788, 1914 and 1997, though, the British monarchy faced deep crisis, but instead of being destroyed. Each time it evolved and survived. How, and why did this happen?
We are welcoming proposals from scholars for papers on a number of inter-related topics, deadline 30 Nov 2010.
