Jacobite Studies Trust Conference 2024 - CONFERENCE

Jacobite Studies Trust Conference | 24-26 May 2024 | Florence, Italy

‘Jacobitism and War’

Proposals for Reserve List & Enrollment, deadline – 31 October 2023

The Jacobite Studies Trust (JST) is pleased to announce a conference on ‘Jacobitism and War’ to be held in Florence, Italy, on 24-26 May 2024. The papers and panels will connect the themes of Jacobitism, anti-Jacobitism or fear of Jacobitism with diplomatic, military and naval history in Europe and beyond, from the Revolution of 1688 to the end of the 18th century, as well as dealing with the threat and actuality of Jacobite rebellion in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and the Jacobites’ impact on British grand strategy and warfighting.

Because this is a reconstituted event originally meant to have taken place in May 2020 there will not be the customary call for papers. Instead, the great majority of those papers originally scheduled for May 2020 will be presented. It is possible, however, that in the course of events a few speakers may drop out and so putative speakers who will be attending the conference in person, but are not scheduled to present, are accordingly welcome to offer papers for a reserve list to be drawn up as outlined below. The deadline for submission of proposals for the reserve list is 31 October 2023. Paper proposals should include a title and a 200-word abstract plus a brief c.v. (maximum one page). Each paper will be allotted twenty minutes of time, followed at the end of each session by questions from the audience. Paper proposals should be emailed as attached Word or .pdf files to Dr Nicola Martin (nicola.martin@uhi.ac.uk) and Dr David Parrish (dparrish@cofo.edu).

Please note that, because of space considerations, enrollment to be physically present at the conference is limited to 35 people. Online enrollment for both presenters and attendees will be opened on 15 September 2023 and close on 31 October 2023. To enroll, please email Professor Daniel Szechi at danielszechi@gmail.com on or after 15 September. We also hope to be able to stream conference sessions, so if you would prefer to attend virtually rather than physically please indicate this in your email to Prof Szechi. Enrollment fees for those attending in person (including coffee during breaks, two lunches, and one dinner) are £160 per attendee. Remote attendance via Zoom, in the event that we can arrange this, will be free of charge.

Further information on the programme, conference events and hotel accommodation will be circulated in November.
