Catholic Record Society 64th Annual Conference

11th-13th July, 2022 | Bar Convent in York, UK.

An interactive livestream of the conference will also be made available.


The conference attracts leaders in the discipline of British and Irish Catholic Studies which we broadly define as the study of individuals who, or institutions which, defined themselves as either British or Irish Catholic. This includes the study of the British and Irish Catholic diaspora from the British Isles to locations worldwide. The conference has a long-standing reputation as a friendly and supportive platform for graduate students and early career researchers especially and we actively encourage proposals from these scholars. We are pleased to invite proposals for papers in the following formats:

  • Panels of three papers.
  • Individual 20-minute papers.
  • Work-in-progress 10-minute papers.

Submissions should include a 300-word abstract and a short CV sent to:  by Friday 29th April 2022. 

We are committed to running an accessible conference and speakers should expect to provide slide decks in advance of the conference taking place to be made available to delegates who require the use of assistive accessibility software. 

Speakers with accessibility needs are asked to provide details of how we can offer support in their submission.


We are delighted to offer a small travel bursary of £150 to support graduate students, early career researchers, and scholars religious to attend the conference. Speakers at the conference will be prioritised. To apply, please provide a brief account of your research and a short CV to
