Dear All,


An exciting interdisciplinary two-day conference will be held at Sussex University, Falmer, Brighton, UK on 24-26 June 2013 on ‘Popes and the Papacy in Early Modern English Culture’.



The conference scope is very broad and will cover diverse aspects of early modern culture, including anti-Catholicism, literary and pictorial representations of the papacy, recusant culture, diplomacy and correspondence, art and architecture, religious controversy, and moral improprieties. 


The deadline for short paper proposals is 15 March, but this may be extended. Short paper proposals are still welcome.


Keynote speakers are: Peter Lake (Vanderbilt University), Susannah Monta (University of Notre Dame) and Alison Shell (UCL).


Here’s a link to the conference notice:

All the best
