Announcing the Call for Papers for On Belonging 2: English Conceptions of Migration and Transculturality, 1550 – 1700 (26 – 30 July 2021)
We are happy to announce that the Call for Papers for our summer 2021 conference is now open! Leading on from our first On Belonging conference in 2018, On Belonging 2 will take place online, with sessions spread out over 5 days between 26 – 30 July 2021.

The conference will reflect on how processes of global exchange in the early modern period influenced English identity, and how the movement of peoples, objects, and ideas across the globe shaped English concepts of belonging both at home and abroad. In keeping with our aim to encourage conversation and exchange, we are moving away from the model of single-scholar keynotes, and we welcome interventions from a variety of approaches, methodologies, and disciplines. The full call for papers can be downloaded here: On Belonging 2 CfP.

We would be happy to answer any queries. Please send abstracts of up to 300 words along with a short biographical note including institutional affiliation (250 words) to tide@ell.ox.ac.uk by 30 April 2021.

Following ‘On Belonging 2’, attendees are invited to TIDE-fest, a weekend series of public events between 31 July – 1 August which will include Q&As, readings, panels, creative writing workshops, and family-friendly events led by the TIDE Visiting Writers. More details will be released soon: registration will be free, and all events will take place online.
