Work, Rest and Power: Architecture, Space and Political Life 1500-1815

Registration is open for the Work, Rest and Power workshop hosted by the University of York. The workshop will take place online on 27 May 2021 and seeks to draw together scholars working on early modern domestic architecture and the home as a political space. 

The workshop will open with an exciting keynote paper from Dr Manolo Guerci of the University of Kent which will address London's Strand as the locus of Whitehall's satellites of architectural conspicuous consumption in the Tudor and Jacobean period. It will then move through four thematic panels exploring patronage, itinerant architecture, space and sociability, and semiotics and materiality. For the full programme and to register please see the website
