This conference, kindly sponsored by the Women’s History Network, aims to bring together postgraduate, early career and leading scholars whose research considers the themes of gender and violence in the early modern world.

It is concerned with aspects of early modern history and literature including, but not limited to:

  • domestic and sexual violence
  • religious violence
  • crime and punishment
  • warfare and martial violence
  • colonial violence
  • riots and parochial disputes

We are designing this conference to build both conceptual bridges between topics of gender and violence, and practical ones between their respective research communities. By asking how gender governs representations, experiences, and meanings of violent episodes in the past, we hope that this conference will offer its participants an opportunity to find common ground and consider new directions.

We are delighted to be welcoming Professor Jane Ohlmeyer (TCD) as our keynote speaker.

Proposals for papers of 20 minutes should consist of a 300-word abstract and a short biography, and contain the applicant’s full name and institutional affiliation (if any). Panel proposals should provide the same material for each of the three panel members, as well as an introduction of 500 words and the name and contact details of a chair, if possible. All submissions should be sent via email to the conference organisers.
