Locating Revolution Conference



Locating Revolution: Place, Voice, Community 1780–1820

Aberystwyth 9–12 July 2012

Plenary Speakers:

Professor John Barrell (University of York); Professor Nigel Leask (University of Glasgow); Professor Claire Connolly (University of Cork)


This is a multi-disciplinary conference jointly hosted by the Wales and the French Revolution Project at the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies; the Centre for Romantic Studies, Aberystwyth University; and the Department of English, Swansea University.

Over thirty speakers will be exploring local, regional, national, European and transatlantic responses to the Age of Revolutions. In what local forms did the upheavals of the age manifest themselves? What was the relationship between social, religious and political loyalties and people’s landscapes and environments? What forms did loyalism and opposition take in particular rural, regional, urban and metropolitan communities? The conference seeks to place ‘history’ in specific locations, mapping connections across Europe, the Atlantic, and the wider world. It also sets out to consider the many different forms - written and oral, hidden and public - that Romanticism, revolution and reaction took at this time.

You are warmly invited to attend the Conference which will include three lectures by prestigious plenary speakers and lectures in Welsh and English by both young and experienced scholars.
