Call for Papers:
Friends and Enemies: Collaboration and Conflict in the 17th Century
Centre for Seventeenth-Century Studies at Durham University, Twelfth International Conference

It is expected that this theme will be approached from a very wide range of disciplinary and methodological perspectives; contributions which span national and disciplinary boundaries are, as always, particularly welcome. Papers should be of 30 minutes’ reading time. Each session will have ample time for discussion. Offers to chair sessions are welcomed from participants who are not reading papers.

Proposals for papers should be of approx. 200 words, and should be sent to the Director, Prof. Richard Maber as soon as possible, but no later than 28 March 2009. Proposals for themed panels are also welcomed.The programme will be announced within the following fortnight.

The conference will take place in the magnificent setting of Durham Castle, from Monday 13 to Thursday 16 July. Residential delegates will depart after lunch on 16 July; it will also be possible to book overnight accommodation for nights before and after the conference if required. Generous bursaries will be available for postgraduates attending the conference, whether or not they are presenting a paper.
