Fairfax 400 Anniversary Conference

Marc Fitch House, University of Leicester

This conference will investigate the impact of Sir Thomas Fairfax  
(1612–1671) upon his time and contemporaries. It will combine the  
approaches of historians and literary scholars to examine afresh his multiple  
roles as a general, politician, landowner, husband and literary figure. His  
memory, image and reputation in art, literature, media and film will also be  
assessed in this exciting weekend conference which will also include an  
afternoon tour of Naseby conducted by members of the Naseby Battlefield  
Project.


Please could prospective speakers email the conference organizers by 1  
January 2012 with your contact details, a title, and a 300-word abstract of  
your proposed contribution.
