University of Leicester
30 June - 1 July 2012
This two-day interdisciplinary conference will investigate the impact
of Sir Thomas Fairfax (1612–1671) upon his time and contemporaries.
It will combine the approaches of historians and literary scholars to
examine afresh his multiple roles as a general, politician, landowner,
husband and literary figure. His memory, image and reputation in art,
literature, media and film will also be assessed.
The conference also includes a guided tour of Naseby battlefield.
