This international conference explores the realities and representations of parliaments and analogous institutions in the British Isles, Western Europe, Scandinavia, and North America in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Sessions will provide talks by noted speakers on the theory and practice of representative government, pictorial and textual images of parliamentary institutions, and discussion of the place of parliament within the state.

The symposium has been organized by Maija Jansson, Director of the Yale Center for Parliamentary History, in consultation with an advisory committee of Yale faculty and curators.

The symposium is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.
