950th anniversary of the Norman Conquest: A millennium(ish) of Immigration, Integration, and Invasion
2016 is the 950th anniversary of the Norman Conquest. 1066 was not the first large-scale invasion of the British Isles, but it is the best remembered for its lasting effects on English, and later British, culture, politics, language, and identity. This conference, however, is not solely concerned with the Norman invasion. It focuses on its wider ramifications and posits it as an entry point for exploring broader themes, involving the merging of peoples and cultures, and the forging of new nations, spaces, and identities. It examines forces that are not peculiar to England of the 11th century, and seeks to consider the human species as both invaders and nomads in a wide variety of contexts.
