Call for Papers: Ruling Sexualities: Sexuality, Gender and the Crown
Conference hosted by Historic Royal Palaces and the University of Winchester, 9-12 July 2018
Deadline for submissions: 31 December 2017
The Royal Studies Network aims to connect scholars across the world whose research focuses on topics related to royal history, diplomacy, art history, political history, biographical studies or any other issues included in the scope of royal studies.
This edition of the Kings and Queens conference will have a particular focus on gender and sexuality as central themes. The convenors are especially interested in studies relating to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer (LGBTQ) identities and the role of sexuality and gender to royal histories. They look to gain an understanding of the perceptions, practices and legacies of gender and sexual identities relating to monarchs, royals and their courts, realising that these may have been very different in historic periods to our contemporary understandings. All topics related to these issues will be welcomed, from diverse chronological periods and parts of the world.
