The Bangor Conference on the Restoration: Britain, Ireland, and the Overseas World, 1660-1714
The Bangor Conference on the Restoration: July Tuesday 25 to Thursday 27, 2017
This year the theme of the regular Bangor Conference on the Restoration will be ‘turning points’: the meeting will explore what were the major transformations in Britain and Ireland in the period 1658-1715; what periodisations they suggest; and whether any of the traditionally-recognised moments of transformation were less radical than has been supposed. Everyone interested in the period, from whatever disciplinary background, is very welcome to attend for three days of discussion – and excellent hospitality – in beautiful north Wales.

Please note that conference registration includes lunches on 26 and 27 July, and refreshments during breaks between sessions: but that you will need to book and pay for the evening buffet meal on the 25th, and the conference dinner on the 26th, separately; and the same is true if you wish to book accommodation in the University’s halls
