BLAKE AND CONFLICT
A Two Day Conference at University College, Oxford
22-23 September, 2006
Call for Papers
For the majority of William Blake's life, Britain was a nation at war.
Countries, individuals, and ideologies clashed in the ferment of the
American, French, and Industrial Revolutions. Britain experienced
unprecedented levels of mobilisation, chronic food shortages, mass
demonstrations, and the repression of civil liberties.
