The Price of Peace

Date: 10 June 2011 Time: 9.30am-5.15pm

Venue: Bailrigg Conference Centre, MR4

This event is hosted by the Cultures of War and Conflict Resolution Network in conjunction with the Northern Renaissance Seminar.

The discourse of peacemaking in the Early Modern period emphasised the benefits or commodities of peace. In peacetime, the arts flourished, trade expanded, camaraderie and tranquillity reigned. Nevertheless, peace always came with a price, and not everyone on every occasion was willing to pay it. What was the price of peace in Early Modern Europe? What did peace require? What did parties entering into peace have to sacrifice in order to arrive at it? What was lost when peace was gained, and why were so many people on so many occasions unable to lose it?

Our one-day seminar will feature a Keynote Address by Richard Dutton, Humanities Distinguished Professor, Ohio State University, on 'Henry V, January 7, 1605'. It will also include talks on topics as varied as 'The Price of Peace during the French Wars of Religion' (Gregory Champeaud, University of Bordeaux 3) and 'The Pleasures of Vengeance in Early Modern Naples' (Stephen Cummins, Christ's College, Cambridge).
