CFP: Monarchy conference 2012 at Kensington Palace

In 2012, to celebrate the reopening of the newly presented palace, Kensington Palace will be holding a conference exploring the theme of monarchy and its relationship to the modern world.

The conference will take place on 6, 7 and 8 June, 2012 at Kensington Palace, and the keynote speaker will be Professor David Cannadine. We are inviting papers for a twelve-paper, day-long double ‘strand’ on Friday 8 June on the topic of monarchy and material culture, with special reference to royal dress, and particularly to the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection. The papers for this strand will be reviewed and selected with the input of a member of the Costume Society’s committee, and will be preceded by a special plenary keynote address on the topic of royal dress.
