Call for Papers

The EMREM Forum is run by postgraduate students from the University of Birmingham and is designed to facilitate discussion amongst postgraduate students who are interested in the Early Medieval-Medieval-Renaissance-Reformation-Early Modern period. The Forum aims to generate an informal atmosphere in which postgraduates (and staff!) can share their research and participate in interdisciplinary and cross-period debate. We welcome members from all institutions and disciplines.
