Parliaments and Popular Sovereignty conference: Call for Papers now open
Parliaments and Popular Sovereignty: Political Representation in the British world, 1640-1886
The 150th anniversary of the 1867 Reform Act, which made important strides towards the inclusion of working people amongst the electorate, is an occasion for wider reflection on the claims for – and of – parliaments to be truly representative of the people. We wish to facilitate discussion across the traditional boundaries of early modern and modern history and to include the Irish parliament and legislatures of British colonies – as well as those excluded from them – alongside the houses of parliament in Westminster.
The Call for Papers is now open, you can see it here. Final date for paper submissions is 25 April 2017.
