EMoDiR’s new Routledge series

The Research Group in Early Modern Religious Dissents and Radicalism is launching its new series with Routlege, https://emodir.hypotheses.org/emodir-routledge-series, a welcome addition on the publishing scence for all scholars working on early-modern dissenting history and literature.

“Titles in the Early Modern Religious Dissents and Radicalism Series address the discursive constructions of religious dissent and the practices of radical movements in the early modern world. The series transcends traditional national and confessional historiographies to examine early modern religious culture as a dynamic system that was essential in forging complex identities and encouraging dialogue among them. The editors seek manuscripts that consider questions of dissent, radicalism, dissidence, libertinism, heresy, and heterodoxy, and examine these themes historically as socio-cultural constructions”

Religion and radicalism in Western Culture, 1700 to present

The History Research Centre at Manchester Metropolitan University, in conjunction with the Centre for the Study of Apocalyptic and Millennial Movements, invites submissions for a one-day symposium on “Religion and Radicalism”, to be held on Wednesday July 17th 2019 in Manchester. As part of the city’s series of events commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre, the symposium seeks to explore links between religious and political radicalism in historical and contemporary contexts. How has religion motivated radical political action, from 19th century reformers to contemporary political protest? What makes a political or religious action radical, and who defines it as such? What are the differences, if any, between political and religious radicalism? The symposium will seek to explore these and other issues, and encourages submissions for 20-25 minute papers from both established scholars and graduate students.

Suggested topics might include, but are not limited to:
•    Religious involvement in radical reform movements
•    Continuities and discontinuities between religious and political radicalism
•    Definitions of radicalism in political and religious movements
•    Radicalism and new religious movements
•    Religious opposition to political radicalism
•    “Radicalisation” in historical contexts
•    The memorialisation of radical reform movements

Please submit to a 200-word abstract, with a short biography (no more than 50 words) to the organiser, Dr Andrew Crome (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by no later than 28th February 2019.

IJBS Regional Day Conference, Loughborough 2019

HONEST LABOUR:  EXPORING THE INTERFACE BETWEEN WORK AND NONCONFORMITY

We are delighted to announce the CFP for the 2019 Day Conference of the IJBS that will take place this year at Loughborough University on Friday 5 April 2019.

This one-day conference looks to produce discussion of the varied ways that work impacted on the lives and writings of early modern Nonconformists and, in turn, on their spiritual practices. It will consider not only paid work or income-generating activities, but also necessarily the ministry and acts of church charity as forms of work. How does a knowledge of an individual’s employment inform how we respond to their religious writings and practices? What is the relationship between labour and faith? How is collective welfare interpreted? Papers may focus on, for example, character studies of honest labourers, or their counterpart, the slothful; working practices and living conditions of Nonconformists and their families, including in prison; pastoralism and charity – the church’s duty of care as depicted inNonconformist writings; mobility and/or displacement; urbanisation and otherchanges to traditional or rural practices; work and Calvinism or work andelection; work as metaphor and praxis.

Please send a title and brief (250-word)summary of a 20-minute paper – no later than 15 February 2019 – to: Catie Gill: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
