Martyrdom and Martyrs: Early Modern Perspectives
Durham, April 2002


CALL FOR PAPERS: INTERDISCIPLINARY INTERNATIONAL COLLOQUIUM,
UNIVERSITY OF DURHAM, UK.


Submissions are invited for a one-day international colloquium hosted by
the Centre for Seventeenth-Century Studies at the University of Durham
(UK) on the theme of "Martyrdom and Martyrs: Early-Modern Perspectives".
The colloquium is interdisciplinary, therefore proposals would be welcome
from all branches of literary and scientific research, the visual arts,
and theology and any other related fields. The topics could range from,
but not be limited to, political, religious and secular martyrs, the
representation, evolution and understanding of martyrdom in the early
modern period, and explorations of the inherent ambiguities of the
martyr-figure.

The conference will be held on Thursday, 11 April 2002 at St John's
College, Durham. Selected papers will be published. Graduate students are
particularly encouraged to apply. Please send a 400 word abstract by 15
January 2002, or for further information contact the conference organiser:
