Announcement of the 2021 Vaughan 400th Birthday Conference and Call for Papers

We are happy to announce that the 2021 Vaughan 400th Birthday Conference will take place on 6-9th May 2021 and will be held in Brecon, Wales. This conference is in honour of the 400th anniversary of the birth of remarkable twin brothers Henry and Thomas Vaughan, who were born and spent much of their lives in the Usk Valley. The conference will explore the interrelation of language, faith and the creation in their work and in that of the most important literary influence on Henry Vaughan, George Herbert.

Shorter papers (20-30 minutes) are invited on any aspect of the conference theme, which may be addressed comparatively or in relation to any one of the three authors. Proposals of approximately 200-300 words should be sent to conference2021@vaughanassociation.org by 30th September 2020.
