Early Modern Churchwarden’s Accounts: Uses and Abuses. Saturday 23 October 2010: 10.30 – 17.30 University of Kent, Canterbury Calling all historians interested in churchwardens’ accounts A conference is being convened to discuss the uses and abuses of early modern churchwardens’ accounts that will hopefully be of interest to all academics working in this field, research students, archivists and local historians. We would like to: gain an overview of the ‘state of play’ regarding research in this field; hear about case studies from around the country; collate evidence of best practice in use of such material; strengthen networks of interested scholars working in this field; float ideas for a major project designed to create a database of extant early modern churchwardens’ accounts for the use of historians and interested members of the public; create a university resource for the future. Papers of no longer than 20-minutes are invited on any aspect of the use of churchwardens’ accounts covering the period c1450-1750. Please supply a short abstract (not exceeding 200 words) of the paper you wish to offer, preferably by email to Dr Valerie Hitchman firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr Andrew Foster, email@example.com or by post to Tim Keward, School of History, Rutherford College, University of Kent, Canterbury, CT2 7NX. Closing date 16th July.
