Conference: Radicalism in the British Isles and Ireland

Rediscovering radicalism in the British Isles and Ireland, c.1550-c.1700: movements of people, texts and ideas
21 - 23 June 2006

Early modern British and Irish history is marked by a succession of fascinating radical movements, ideologies and events. This interdisciplinary conference sets out to explore the role of migration and the exchange of ideas, images and texts in the history of those events, ideologies and movements (or moments). The conference, which will be of interest to historians, literary scholars and members of the public alike, will raise a number of crucial issues. These include problems of definition, the changing face of radicalism and the notion of radicalism in evolution; and the impact of the movement of people, ideas, images and texts across and within geographical boundaries, as well as across time. We very much hope you will wish to participate in this lively debate.
