NINTH TRIENNIAL CONFERENCE OF THE INTERNATIONAL JOHN BUNYAN SOCIETY 
14-17 August 2019 

University of Alberta, Edmonton Canada
 

Networks of Dissent: Connecting and Communicating Across the Long Reformation

 

SAVE THE DATE!

This is an early preview of the next IJBS triennial conference in 2019. We warmly invite you to join us. Information on events, keynote speakers and registration information will become available as the next conference approaches.

Our theme can be broadly and flexibly imagined. We welcome your ideas on relevant topics, examples and areas. We will also welcome proposals for special panels.

Our theme is not exclusive. We will welcome papers on all aspects of Bunyan’s writings and early modern dissent. Papers from a variety of disciplines are welcome.

The University of Alberta’s Bruce Peel Special Collections Library has one of the largest rare Bunyan collections in the world, ranking with the British Library and the New York Public Library. An exhibition of rare books curated by Sylvia Brown will be a main feature of the conference. Your conference visit could include research time in our special collections library.

We plan to add cultural and recreational opportunities to our conference schedule. Edmonton is a great summertime city, featuring theatre and music festivals. Edmonton is also a gateway to Canada’s spectacular Rocky Mountains, making it an ideal prospect for combining conference and holiday time.

Organizing Committee: David Gay (University of Alberta david.gay@ualberta.ca); Sylvia Brown (University of Alberta sb9@ualberta.ca); Arlette Zinck (The King’s University Arlette Zinck Arlette.Zinck@kingsu.ca)
