Brethern of Britons: Loyalism in Ireland, Britain and the Empire, 1875-1914
Register here .
Once considered a simplistic counter-revolutionary reaction, many historians now view loyalism as an ideologically sophisticated and empowering phenomenon which could transcend class and creed. This conference will examine and compare loyalism in Ireland, Britain and throughout the Empire across a wide time frame and in a range of contexts. Papers are invited dealing with relevant themes including ideology, rituals, the organisational, cultural and religious dimensions and loyalism's links with popular politics, economic thought, militarism, civic and national identity and loyalist diasporas. Keynote speakers include Professor Frank O'Gorman of the University of Manchester and Professor Donald McRaild of the University of Ulster.
