Postgraduates from all fields of EMREM (History, Archaeology, Literature, Linguistics, Music, Art History) are welcome to share their research by giving papers and/or entering the exhibition, while also building networks at this friendly and well-established symposium.  You may submit both a paper and an image.

For the exhibition send a high resolution image along with a 200 word summary of what it shows and how it links to your research (if accepted, we will organise the printing). These will be exhibited during the conference, and prizes awarded.

Medieval Midlands
Medieval Midlands (supported by the AHRC’s Midlands 3 Cities consortium) are pleased to invite proposals for papers, posters, workshops and roundtables for the second Medieval Midlands Postgraduate Conference, to be held at De Montfort University, 27th-28th April, 2017. The theme of the conference is ‘Identity in the Middle Ages’.The conference welcomes papers that focus on any geographical location between 400- 1500 CE from any relevant academic discipline. Speakers are encouraged to interpret the theme of ‘Identity’ as is relevant to their own postgraduate research.

The conference will celebrate dynamic and innovative research that is currently taking place in the UK Midlands, and submissions are therefore welcomed on this basis.

Papers will be 20 minutes in length. Abstracts of around 300 words are invited from postgraduate researchers. Proposals are also welcomed for other formats of presentation and should also be put into a 300 word abstract. All of these should be sent to Esther Lewis at Esther.Lewis@nottingham.ac.uk by Friday 10th February 2016. Please title your email “Medieval Midlands Conference Submission”.
