    International Conference

    POLITICAL RITUAL IN THE UNITED KINGDOM, 1700 - 2000


    Organised by the
    German Association for the Study of British History and Politics
    (Arbeitskreis Deutsche England-Forschung)
    Date: 30 May - 1 June 2003
    Venue: Mühlheim an der Ruhr, Germany

    Political rituals, ceremony and the symbolic representation of power and
    government have played a prominent role in the history of the United
    Kingdom. While many Britons take pride in the longstanding traditions
    of political institutions like the House of Parliament or the monarchy,
    most foreign observers would probably agree on the exceptional prominence
    of traditional forms and rituals in Britain's political culture. However, in
    1983 we were told that many of Britain's (and other countries') traditions
    were not quite as longstanding as some would expect and that historians were
    to follow the history of their inventions in order to understand their
    meanings and their contexts. Twenty years after Eric Hobsbawm's and
    Terence Ranger's _The Invention of Tradition_, the history of political
    rituals in Britains still remains to be written. How are historians and
    political scientists to account for phenomena as different as the wide
    range of urban and civic ritual in the 17th and 18th century, the meaning
    of changing electional rituals in the 19th century and the evolution and
    development of parliamentary traditions? How do we understand recent
    events like the funerals of Lady Di and Queen mother in the context of
    the history of political rituals in the United Kingdom?

    The German Association for the Study of British History and Politics will
    address these questions in its annual meeting on 30 May - 1 June 2003
    in Mühlheim an der Ruhr, Germany.
