Call for Paper: Work, Rest and Power: Architecture, Space and Political Life 1500-1815. Online, 27 May 2021

An online interdisciplinary workshop hosted by the Humanities Research Centre at the University of York to be held on 27 May 2021. The workshop addresses the role of the home in politics and political life in the Early Modern world to broadly explore questions of space, materiality, gender, power and politics. It aims to bring together scholars working on the home as a political space to share and refine approaches to the study of political life. The workshop will open with a keynote paper from Dr Manolo Guerci, University of Kent, whose work specialises in the domestic architecture of Early Modern Europe.
For further information please see the poster and the workshop website. The workshop organisers invite scholars of all levels to submit abstracts that address this theme in relation to any period or place within the Early Modern era. Please submit abstracts of no more than 250 words and a brief biography to Kirsty Wright (kmw532@york.ac.uk) and Murray Tremellen (mat550@york.ac.uk) by 12 April 2021.
