Call For Papers

Cultural, Political and Religious Identity Formation in Britain and
Ireland, c. 1500-1914

Two day international conference: 18 -– 19 June 2015

Department of Celtic Languages and Literatures, Adam Mickiewicz
University, Poznań, Poland

Cultural, political and religious identities within the four nations of
Britain and Ireland in the early modern and modern periods developed
against shifting backgrounds of political and economic co-operation and
antagonism; war and violence; and international diplomatic pressures. This
conference seeks to problematise and historicise the issue of British and
Irish cultural, political and confessional identities in the early modern
and modern periods, firmly situated in their proper historical contexts.
We are interested in the convergence of these three aspects of identity
across the early modern and modern periods, and in the contradictions that
incompatible political, religious, and cultural loyalties created. This
scholarly meeting will provide a platform for the discussion of the
development of cultural, political and confessional identities in Britain
and Ireland as a result of exchange and encounter within and between the
four nations and engagement with international ideas and developments. In
particular, we seek papers that address the following:

- Political centralisation and the periphery

- Identity formation in the context of colonisation and European expansion

- Identity formation and confessionalisation

- The impact of emigration and industrial revolution on identity formation

- Nationalism, cultural movements and identity formation

- Militarisation, pacifism and identity

- Religious dissent and identity

The organisers welcome papers that address any of these issues. Please
send a 300 word abstract of your paper and a one-page CV to the
organisers, Dr Martyna Jones and Dr Danielle McCormack:

mjones@wa.amu.edu.pl
dmccormack@wa.amu.edu.pl
By 31 January 2015.

The organisers hope to publish a volume based on selected proceedings.

The language of the conference is English.
