The Peace of Utrecht (11 April 1713), 300 years and six days old, is not only at the centre of an international conference next week (cf. conference "Perfomances of Peace", 24-26 April, mentioned earlier on the ESCLH blog, Utrecht University/Dutch-Belgian Society for 18th Century Studies). 

In the course of the year, scientific meetings are planned at Utrecht (19 September; Utrecht's legacy today), The Hague (19-20 September: Peace Treaties 1913-2013), Paris (24-26 October; "Une Paix pour le monde: Utrecht, 1713"; Paris-Sorbonne/Bordeaux/Barcelona)), Montréal (22 November) and Ypres (29 November; UGent/Ypres Archives). 

The "Rechtsgeschiedenis blog" gives a handy overview of most of the activities.
