        A Conference at The Centre for Early Modern Studies, University of

The Aberdeen Centre for Early Modern Studies is holding an international
conference on the long seventeenth century, from 20 to 22 July, 2006. The
plenary speakers include Catherine Belsey, Peter Burke, and Annabel
Patterson. We invite proposals for 20 minute papers on any aspect of
British, American, or Continental literature, philosophy, culture, and
history during the long Seventeenth Century. They should be sent by email to
the conference organizer, Professor Derek Hughes
(1603_at_abdn.ac.uk), by 28 February, 2006. Every effort will be made to
accommodate early applicants who require a decision before that date.

The University of Aberdeen, founded in 1495, is one of the most ancient
British universities, and is the most northerly of the older ones. Aberdeen
is situated on the North Sea coast, and a convenient point of departure for
the Highlands and the Orkneys. The airport (with direct flights to London)
is only five miles from the university, and there are direct trains to
Edinburgh, Glasgow, and other Scottish cities. Its Centre for Early Modern
Studies (http://www.abdn.ac.uk/cems) brings together distinguished early
modern scholars in all the major disciplines, and fosters collaborative
research in the fields of history, philosophy, literature, and the other
arts. It is proud to welcome as its newest members Professor Janet Todd,
Professor Robert Frost, and Dr Karin Friedrich.
