We are seeking a participant for a panel proposal to be submitted for the NACBS (North American Conference on British Studies) in Washington DC, 11-13 November, 2016. Our panel seeks to explore the reception of resistance leaders, and how these were perceived, constructed and/or combated by the British. Focus is therefore not on the individuals themselves, but rather the reception of these in different aspects (e.g. in metropolitan culture, on the ground, in other colonial theatres, from the perspective of government officials etc.).

The New England parlor, designed for the reception and entertainment of visitors, communicated the social position and aspirations of the family. No other space received as much concentrated attention and economic outlay in its decoration, design, and furnishings. The use of parlors gradually evolved over the 18th century. Beginning as multipurpose spaces for sleeping, cooking, working, and eating, by the end of the century only the dining and entertaining functions remained.
