1 July 2014 – University of Warwick
The Departments of History and French Studies at the University of Warwick will be holding a one-day conference on July 1st 2014 on the popular reactions in Europe and beyond to Napoleon’s dramatic return to France and his brief reign and overthrow. We are interested in short (10 minute) papers that identify particular objects – anything that can be displayed visually on-line – and speak to their significance as part of a story about how people reacted to and understood the events of the period. Appropriate papers will form the basis for contributions to an on-line exhibition charting the 100 days that will unfold in real time from February 2015.
The conference will take place on the Warwick campus from 10.00am-6.00pm and will be followed by a ‘performance’ and by dinner. Overnight accommodation and transport costs will be reimbursed.
If you would like to give a paper please write a 100 word para identifying the object/artefact and why you think it is important and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, copying in email@example.com. Please submit your proposal before the end of February 2014.
