‘Conquest: 1016, 1066’ – an interdisciplinary anniversary conference.

St Anne’s College, Oxford, and TORCH, 20-23 July 2016.

Call for Session Proposals (CFP to follow in May/June 2014)


Sessions will run in parallel for 90 minutes each. Session proposals of any suitable form are invited (3x20min papers, 2x30min papers, round tables, debates); session organisers are welcome to have speakers already in mind, but need not do so: a call for papers will follow. Session organisers are asked to nominate one or more of the thematic strands in which their session would fit:

1.    The Church; monasticism, clerical reform, theology, religious experience
2.    Literature, authors, and patronage
3.    Language and multilingualism, language contact
4.    Institutions and governance; lordship; kingship
5.    Warfare, battles, conduct in war, fighting men
6.    Art and material culture; music; court life
7.    Society and peoples
8.    Trade and commerce
9.    Space, movement, contact, networks; England and Europe, England and Scandinavia
10.  Historiography
