The University of Southampton will be holding its Sixth Wellington Congress 9-12 April 2015. Keynote Speakers will include Rory Muir and Roger Knight.

Proposals are invited for papers on all aspects of the career of the first Duke of Wellington, as well as the wider context in Britain, Ireland, the Empire and Continental Europe, between 1780 and the mid-nineteenth century. 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 Faculty of Humanities' Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies.
