The conference 'The Queen’s Resources: Examining the lands, revenues, networks, and economic power of premodern royal women', to be held at the University of Winchester on 4-6 September 2022 in hybrid form (in person or remote participation), seeks to examine the economic agency and activity of royal women across premodern Europe.
The conference will both bring together the themes of previous workshops on lands, resources, affinities, and administration, and cover other areas related to the financial practices of royal women. The conference will also include a workshop where participants will work together to map the next phase of the project and develop an application for funding for future plans for collaborative research (draft programme below, subject to change).
Registration for the conference is now open: https://store.winchester.ac.uk/conferences-and-events/external-conferences-events/conferences/the-queens-resources-conference
There are a range of options including residential packages to stay onsite at the university, day attendance options if you live locally or want to source your own accommodation, or virtual options to attend online only (rates are calculated at cost, with different rates for staff/faculty and student/early career/independent). Both the full packages, residential and day, include the conference dinner but if you book individual days only, you need to add the conference dinner if you want to join in for that evening event. The virtual attendance charge is a flat fee which covers ALL days of the conference.
