Boyd Tonkin has written that credence in the power of dynastic blood is the
‘residue of a magical world view’, yet in this period dynasty co-existed
with new kinds of national and imperial state. Cliff Davies has questioned
whether a dynasty such as the Tudors existed at all in the minds of
contemporaries, suggesting they might have been ‘invented’


This conference aims to ask afresh what royal dynasty was in the late medieval
and early modern periods: what beliefs underpinned it, whence its power and
mystique derived, and who or what ruling dynasties believed themselves to be. In
recent decades, the ‘new political history’ has reanimated the study of
monarchy, courts, parliaments and royal image-making, using a range of
interdisciplinary techniques, in the  process enriching our grasp of political
culture in the late medieval and early   modern periods. This conference now
seeks to put dynasty under the spotlight, as a category of analysis in its own
right, and as a major organising political principle in the pre-modern world.

Abstract submissions are invited for a major international conference on Dynasty
and Dynasticism, 1400-1700, in Europe and beyond.

Abstracts for proposed papers (max. 500 words) should be sent to
dynasty at history.ox.ac.uk by 1st August 2015 .
