The University of Manchester invites papers for

Hampton Court Palace and Kingston University, London, 29-30 June 2006

Keynote speakers:
Karen Britland, Ann Hughes, Julie Sanders, Nigel Smith

In the summer of 1642 Charles I and his governing entourage left Whitehall.
This conference investigates what happened next to one of the most important
institutions of his reign, the court. How did court life change? What did
the movement of the courts mean for government? Indeed, how useful is the
term 'court' after 1642?

Remnants, Remainders, and Reconceptualizations

Department of English
York University
Toronto, Canada

Due to the nature of cultural production, both academic and creative,
it is inevitable that particular texts, objects, subjects, cultures,
and concepts will be marginalized or excluded, giving a confusing and
often contradictory cultural landscape to a coherence that is abstract
and problematic. How might we account for the remnants and remainders
that are scattered about our fields of inquiry? How might we begin to
reconceptualize these grounds?
