On this occasion, there will also be a special focus on the events of 1815. Submissions may come from any discipline that focuses on this period.

Proposals (up to 250 words) should be submitted to by 6 October 2014. Papers should not exceed 30 minutes in length.

The University’s Hartley Library is the home of the first Duke of Wellington’s archive, and the meeting will include opportunities to see the collection, as well as a programme of social activities. The event is organised in conjunction with the University's Hartley Library and the Faculty of Humanities’ Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies.
