War, Society, and Culture in Britain c.1688-1830

University of Leeds

4-5 July 2013

A two-day conference exploring all aspects of the relationship between war, the armed forces and Britain in the long eighteenth century.

Call for papers

The conference aims to foster an interdisciplinary approach to the multiple aspects of the interaction between war and Britons, and we look forward to hearing from those studying art, music, material culture, the press, as much as social, economic, political and military historians. Furthermore, the conference is not restricted to wars which involved Britain, and papers could address the reception of conflicts and military events from across the globe in the British Isles.

A principal theme for the conference keynote lecture and workshop will be ‘victories and defeats’, but we welcome papers on all aspects of the relationships between warfare, the armed forces (both the army and the navy), society, and culture in the British Isles during the long eighteenth century.

As well as 20 minute papers, we are also open to proposals for shorter, 10-minute discussion papers aimed at providing an insight into your approach and methods or key sources in your research, which might be particularly suitable for those at the early stages of their work.

Please submit a 200 word abstract (maximum) for a 20 minutes paper or 10 minute discussion paper to: The deadline for submissions is 13 January 2013.

If you have any questions, please e-mail
