Kings & Queens Conference Series
Our annual conference series provides an international forum for research in the field of royal studies.
The Kings & Queens conference series has been running since 2012. After three years at its home base in the UK, it is now ‘on tour’ - hosted by various universities in Europe and North America. The ‘K&Q’ conferences provide an opportunity for scholars and students to share their research and have productive meeting places for collaboration. In fact, the Network, the Royal Studies Journal and five external publications have all come from meetings at K&Qs - with more on the way! The conferences are known for their friendly and supportive atmosphere, with many delegates returning year after year to take part in the series and meet up with colleagues.
