Occuring in tandem with the National Gallery of Australia's blockbuster exhibition Versailles: Treasures from the Palace, this conference showcases the latest ideas about the lives of past people and objects, as well as the living culture of Versailles today. Staged in Canberra, which like Versailles is a planned capital city, centre of government and culture, this is a unique opportunity to explore the enduring influence and resonance of Versailles, its desires and self-perceptions of modernity, from film to fashion to architecture.

During the Romantic era, periodicals played an important role in the expansion of the reading public.  As the number and range of periodicals proliferated in Britain in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, these diverse publications came to be regarded as crucial agents of social progress, diffusing knowledge and shaping cultural taste. By focusing on the links between politics and emotions in periodicals, this symposium aims to deepen understanding of the affective dimensions of this crucial phase in the development of public opinion.
