New conference: Disruptions and Continuities in Gender Roles and Authority, 1450-1750

The new Disrupted Authority research group at the University of Portsmouth – SASHPL are organising an interdisciplinary conference linking issues of gender and authority in the early modern period, to be held at Portsmouth on the 29-30 June 2020.  One keynote speaker will be Professor Ann Hughes, from Keele University, whose book Gender and the English Revolution is essential reading for those wanting to understand issues of gender in the seventeenth century.  There is a call for papers for academics and postgraduates, across a range of disciplines, to send in abstracts for potential twenty-minute papers to present at the conference.
If you want to know more, see the conference webpage for details or have a chat with Dr Fiona McCall or Dr Bronwen Price who are organising the conference, in cooperation with their colleagues in the new research group, Dr Jessica Dyson, Dr Katy Gibbons and Dr Maria Cannon, about which we hope to say more on this blog shortly.
