Representing the British Civil Wars 1660-2009: Adaptation, Reflection, Transmission, Debate
University of Manchester, 4-6 December, 2009
This conference considers the ways in which the conflict period of the 1640s and 1650s have
been manifest in culture, political thought, historiography and popular imagination, from
Southeyâ€™s Life of Oliver Cromwell to Clarendon, from To Kill a King to the imminent film of
Paradise Lost. The conference looks at cultural appropriation and the ways in which particular
representational tropes have been developed and perpetuated.
