The Medieval Midlands Postgraduate Conference is an event designed to highlight the research into the medieval period currently being undertaken in the UK Midlands. It is open to students from any discipline whose research some way relates to the study of the Middle Ages, c. 500-c. 1500. Whilst this is designed to showcase the research primarily of the Midlands3Cities institutions, this is not to the exclusion of other postgraduate researchers, who are encouraged to submit abstracts and to register as delegates. Indeed, the conference aims to host delegates from a wide range of institutions. By bringing together researchers in a supportive and encouraging environment we offer a platform for research to be shared and discussed, and by encouraging attendance from diverse of disciplines and institutions we hope to continue the legacy of the 2016 and 2017 conferences, which helped to establish a peer-led support network for PhD and MA students who are researching the medieval period.
The theme of the conference is ‘Boundaries and Frontiers in the Middle Ages’. Speakers have been encouraged to interpret ‘boundaries’ and ‘frontiers’ in relation to their own research, including topics centred on physical, cultural, social, or religious areas.
The keynote speaker is Dr Jonathan Jarrett (University of Leeds)
The registration webpage will be created soon and added to this announcement.
