University of Hull, 20th - 21st May 2015

Military Masculinities in the Long Nineteenth Century is a conference being held on the 20th – 21st May 2015 to commemorate the bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo and the lasting impact of the Napoleonic Wars upon the history of militarism.

Hosted by the University of Hull (through the English Department’s Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies), we endeavour to bring together scholars from across the humanities working on masculinity, war, and empire. We will showcase papers dealing with the ‘military’ in its broadest sense, extending our consideration to topics including maritime music, imperialism, widowhood, military memoirs and domesticity . We are pleased to welcome two exciting keynote speakers, Doctor Holly Furneaux and Professor Joanne Bailey, and our evening speaker, Doctor James Davey, curator of naval history at the National Maritime Museum. ‘Military Masculinities in the Long Nineteenth Century’ is proud to be affiliated with the official Waterloo celebrations, Waterloo 200, and sponsored by the Royal Historical Society, Hull's Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies and the British Association for Victorian Studies.
