Submission deadline: Wednesday, May 1 2013

Institute of Historical Research
London, United Kingdom
The relationship between horse-racing and politics is a long and fascinating one. From at least the 17th century, the machinations of high politics and the fascinations of horseflesh and the track have been closely inter-twined.
This one day conference is designed to draw together scholars with an interest in the subject. Proposals for either themed panels or individual short (20 minute) papers on any aspect of this relationship are invited, by 1 May.
