War and Peace in the Age of Napoleon II, Conference: 8-10 September 2022
Call for Papers, deadline – 3 May 2022
More than 200 years after his death, the life and times and Napoleon Bonaparte continue to fascinate and ignite passionate debate. Research conducted to mark the bicentennial of the period has resulted in fascinating new discoveries and fresh perspectives on age old questions. Yet the period 1769-1821 was about far more than the life of one man and the course of one conflict, witnessing revolutions in everything from the waging of wars, the running of governments, and much more besides.
The second ‘War and Peace in the Age of Napoleon Conference’ aims to build upon the rich research which has emerged in recent years, with a vibrant, 2.5 day international conference that will be ‘hybrid’ in its format (i.e. both ‘in person and online’). Returning after the huge success of the first event in 2019, the conference will be run by the ‘Napoleonic & Revolutionary War Graves Charity’ and held at the National Army Museum, London, from the 8th to 10th September 2022.
Organisers are now welcoming proposals for 20 minute conference papers offering a fresh perspective on any subject relating to the history of the period 1769-1821. Possible topics might include (but need not be limited to) the social, political, military or economic aspects of the period, gender history, diplomatic history, war and society, conflict archaeology, or, in keeping with the charity’s focus, memory and memorialisation. Proposals are also welcome for panels of three speakers on a particular theme.
To apply simply send your name, email address, paper title, 150 word biography and a 300 word abstract outlining your proposed paper’s aims and arguments, along with how it will achieve them and how this will advance understanding of the period to NRWGCharity@gmail.com by Tuesday 3rd May.
