From Reason to Revolution Conference 2021
Saturday 17th April 2021
Helion and Company are proud to announce the 2021 From Reason to Revolution Conference. This year’s conference will focus on warfare in the age of Napoleon, looking at aspects of the armies of both sides and their experiences on campaign and in battle. Many of the speakers are published authors from the From Reason to Revolution series, or are working towards some of our future titles, and include some major names in international Napoleonic studies.
Ticket holders will be sent a joining link by email ahead of the event, and will have access to a virtual bookshop during the event with 25% reductions on all From Reason to Revolution titles. The Demio
platform we will be using is entirely browser-based and requires no extra downloads.
For the benefit of anyone wanting to tune in from overseas, the event times as given are British Summer Time (UTC+1).
You will be able to join the event from 12.50 p.m. on Saturday 17th April before the 1.00 p.m. start.
Please note also that all ticket holders will be sent a recording of the full event, so if you are not able to listen to the whole event on the day you will still be able to catch up afterwards.
