Conspiracies Real and Imagined - Call for Papers

Posted on 22 December 2010

The organisers of the 2011 York Cultural History Conference on 'Conspiracies Real & Imagined', which will take place in September, invite researchers to submit paper proposals of up to 300 words.

The organisers of the 2011 York Cultural History Conference on Conspiracies Real and Imagined welcome proposals for papers.

The conference aims to consider conspiracy across historical period and geographical borders, seeking to provoke debate about the role of the imagine, of the non-event, in the course of historical action. Consideration of actual conspiracies will not be neglected, and papers considering the relationship between real and imagined conspiracies, discussing actual conspiratorial action, and how it is justified, will be welcomed.

Confirmed speakers include Keith Jeffrey (Queen's University, Belfast), Ritchie Robertson (St John's College, Oxford), Peter Knight (University of Manchester) and John Cooper (University of York).
