fig169ST STEPHEN’S CHAPEL, WESTMINSTER: Visual and Political Culture 1292-1941
This major conference will present the results of a three-year project to explore the history of a building at the heart of the political life of the nation for over 700 years.

Keynote speakers include Professor David Carpenter (King’s College, London) & Dr Paul Seaward (History of Parliament)

The conference will showcase the research undertaken by a team of experts on the transformation of St Stephen’s chapel from medieval chapel to the first House of Commons debating chamber, as well as including academics whose research on the chapel directly complements the project’s findings.

There will be a reception at the Society of Antiquaries with a display of art and artefacts relating to the Chapel. A digital model of St Stephen’s and the Commons chamber, incorporating research from the project, will be on show for the first time.
For any queries, contact the project’s administrative assistant, Jonathan Hanley via email.
