‘Rethinking Medieval Methodologies: 21st Century Approaches to Understanding the Middle Ages’

Annual IMR Postgraduate Conference:

Rethinking Medieval Methodologies:  21st Century Approaches to Understanding the Middle Ages

7 July 2012 • 9.00-5.00 • The University of Nottingham (Trent Building)

Interdisciplinary, cross-fertilisation, thinking outside the box. Hidden behind these buzzwords are a myriad of new and exciting ways in which scholars are rethinking the discourse of the Middle Ages. For example, work within the fields of empirical science and the inroads made by the social sciences have allowed for the development of unique and innovative ways to contextualize and interpret the Medieval world.

In this conference, we will hear from scholars applying methods and approaches normally reserved for other fields or time periods to any study of the Medieval era.

Keynote speakers:

  • Prof. Howard Williams (University of Chester)
  • Dr Faye Simpson (Manchester Metropolitan University)
  • Dr Christina Lee (University of Nottingham)
