CFP: Newton-Milton (Sussex, July 2009)

NEWTON: MILTON, TWO CULTURES

22-25 July 2009

University of Sussex

Brighton, United Kingdom

Newton:Milton, Two Cultures? is co-hosted by the Centre for Intellectual History and the Centre for Early Modern Studies at the University of Sussex. The international conference aims to bring together experts in the fields of English Literature, History of Science and general History to consider a number of questions relating to the work and careers of Isaac Newton and John Milton.

The conference will represent a unique opportunity for specialists in the work and careers of these extraordinary figures to meet and to learn from each other. Participants are particularly encouraged to seek connections between the writing and thought of Newton and Milton, although the conference organisers are also interested in receiving proposals for papers that offer relevant material relating to social, political, theological and intellectual contexts in relation to either figure. The organisers are especially keen to invite doctoral and postdoctoral students to give papers at the conference or to attend the conference.

Keynote speaker: Barbara Lewalski, (Professor of History and Literature and of English Literature, Harvard University)

The deadline for abstract submission inresponse to this Call for Papers is 31 April. The conference organizers are seeking 250-word proposals in the fields of English Literature, History of Science and general History relating to the work and careers of Milton and Newton. An online proposal submission form and further details about the conference are available at the Conference website.
