This one-day conference, organised by the Centre for the English-Speaking World of Aix-Marseille Université in association with the Dr Williams’s Centre for Dissenting Studies and the University of Liverpool, focuses on the forms of dissenting expression available to dissenters and their congregations, on both sides of the Atlantic, throughout the seventeenth century. The conference examines the wealth and variety of written materials, both in print and from archival sources, related to the experience of dissent across a wide spectrum of genres: from surviving gathered-church records and church books in Old and New England to letters and correspondence, poetry, and dissenting activities in the book trade. The conference will explore the methodological challenges and possibilities of using such sources to explore how the dissenting experience was documented and communicated, as well as to assess their value in the literary history of dissent and the writing of its collective history. This is the second in a series of three annual events exploring the collective experience of the dissenting churches in the period 1600-1800.
