Dear Fellows of the International Napoleonic Society,

I am pleased to announce that the 2010 International Napoleonic Congress will be held 12-16 July on the beautiful island of Malta. In his week there, Napoleon completely changed the island, as he was about to completely change the Middle East and Europe. Thus, the theme for the Congress is Napoleon and the Transition to the Modern World. Below is a preliminary announcement. Further details will be sent to you soon. I hope that you will all give strong consideration to attending the Congress and if at all possible presenting a paper.

This Congress will give participants an excellent opportunity to explore a Napoleonic island that is often overlooked in comparison with Corsica, Elba or St. Helena. As such, it will be a unique Congress and I hope to see many of you there.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Best regards to you all,

David Markham
President

Letter from the President

 

Dear INS Fellows,


It is with great pleasure that I can report that plans for the Malta Congress are moving along very nicely. There is no question that this will be an outstanding Congress and I encourage you all to attend. If you are interested in presenting a paper, please let me know right away if at all possible, even if the paper is not yet completed.

Please remember that you must make your hotel arrangements through our agent in Malta, Jenny Adams ( jennymalta@hotmail.com). She will provide you with a bank account number for a direct transfer. She can also take a credit card, but there will be a 3% charge for that method of payment. Because of this special arrangement with the hotel, you must pay for the hotel in full when you register with Jenny.


The cut-off date for hotel registration is Tuesday, 15 June 2010. We will not be able to guarantee room availability after that date.
Please do not wait until the last minute to make your hotel reservations. And please send me your regular registration form as soon as possible so that I can begin to plan a detailed schedule. We currently plan to provide a Napoleonic tour and to offer an optional island tour for those who might be interested, at their expense.

We were able to obtain truly outstanding rates from the Corinthia Palace Hotel and Spa. You will seldom have an opportunity to stay in a five star hotel at these rates, especially while enjoying not only a great Napoleonic congress in a Napoleonic historical site, but also a beautiful Mediterranean destination resort island.

The rates are:

€55 per person per day for double occupancy, including breakfast and all taxes.

€70 per person single occupancy, including breakfast and all taxes.

One child staying with two adults: no charge, including breakfast.

Two children sharing a single room: €70 per day, including breakfast and all taxes.

On another matter, it is with great pleasure that I can inform you that our journal, Napoleonic Scholarship, will be ready for publication very soon. It will have 17 contributing authors, 63 illustrations (six of which are also reproduced in full color on the inside and outside back cover), and 16 pages of important Russian and French translations from the Battle of Borodino. INS Fellows will receive a free copy, which should arrive in early May.


As always, I send each of you my very best Napoleonic greetings,


David Markham
President



Eighth International Napoleonic Congress

Napoleon and the Transition to the Modern World

Malta July 12–16, 2010

The International Napoleonic Society will hold its eighth International Napoleonic Congress on the beautiful island of Malta, host to one of Napoleon’s lesser-known but very interesting episodes. The congress will be held in the spectacular five star Corinthia Palace Hotel and Spa in San Anton. The hotel is located next to the Presidential Palace and botanical gardens, and is close to all of the tourist and historical sites. All participants should plan to stay at the Corinthia, which will be our host hotel. There are no other hotels in near proximity.

Further information, including hotel information and a formal call for papers will be distributed in the near future. We encourage scholars to submit paper proposals that reflect the theme of the Congress or are the result of important new research. The official languages of the Congress will be English and French. Previous International Napoleonic Congresses have been held in Canada, Italy, Israel, Georgia, Poland and France, and have attracted scholars and students from around the world. We encourage all people interested in this era to attend this Congress, whether or not they wish to give a paper.

Registration for this congress will be handled differently than those in the past. You will send a registration form to the INS, and you will need to make your hotel reservations through our agent on Malta, as part of a package for the congress. That way we can get an excellent rate at the Corinthia and also for some of the additional activities. We will provide information on hotel registration in the near future. Meanwhile, please do not make reservations directly with the hotel.

Call For Papers

International Napoleonic Society

Eighth International Napoleonic Congress

Napoleon and the Transition to the Modern World

San Anton, Malta July 12 – 16, 2010

The International Napoleonic Society will hold its eighth International Napoleonic Congress on the beautiful and historic island of Malta. The congress will be held in the spectacular five-star Corinthia Palace Hotel and Spa in San Anton.  

In 1798, Napoleon spent a week on Malta and singlehandedly moved it from its medieval moorings into the modern era. He would have a similar impact in Egypt and the Holy Land and, soon enough, in Europe itself. Thus, the theme for the Congress is Napoleon and the Transition to the Modern World. We especially encourage papers that concentrate on that theme, as well as on specific campaigns and other aspects of Napoleonic history from that period. As always, other papers and themes will be given full consideration and we encourage you to submit any proposal. Special attention will be given to new research on any Napoleonic topic.

Papers should be no more than 15 pages double-spaced, and presentations are limited to 20-30 minutes. Please complete the registration form and also include a one-page summary of your paper and a résumé. We encourage you to request an electronic version of the form so that you can submit it via email. When completed, please submit a printed version of your paper as well as an electronic version via email attachment or CD, using Microsoft WORD or another major word processing program. You may give us the printed version of your paper at the Congress. If requested, you will be given an opportunity to make revisions to your paper. Selected papers will be published in our journal, Napoleonic Scholarship, and/or on our website.

The official languages of the conference will be English and French. Hotel and further registration information will be forthcoming via email and on our website. Registration must be made through our agent, and not directly with the hotel.

We urge you to check for further information and forms on our official website, www.napoleonicsociety.com. If you have not already done so, please send us your email address, as that is our preferred method of communication.
