This two-day multidisciplinary conference will be held in-person at Queen Mary University of London. Its focus is on how atheist, secularist, and humanist ideas circulate within and across nations in the period c.1789–1914, with papers approaching this question at both micro and macro scales, exploring the local, national, and international networks that enabled freethought to flourish and discussing how the legacies of these persisted across the twentieth century and through to the present.
All conference details, including provisional programme, can be found on the conference webpage: https://www.qmul.ac.uk/sed/aboutus/events/freethought/
