An International Conference at the University of Ulster Belfast Campus on 18-19 June 2009

Since 1688, when John Churchill (later first duke of Marlborough) defected to the Williamites to Randolph Churchill playing the Orange card to Winston Churchill’s long and contentious relationship with Irish nationalism and unionism, the Churchill have had an enormous impact on the history of Ireland. The aim of this conference is to explore this relationship since the late 17th century. Conference themes include Marlborough, the Jacobites and the Williamite War, the 6th and 7th dukes and Ireland, Randolph Churchill and the Union, Winston Churchill and Home Rule, Empire, World, the writing of Anglo-Irish History and the legacies of the Churchills and Ireland
