Events at the Medieval Research Centre

Many events are organised by or affiliated with the Leicester Medieval Research Centre, and details of these for 2018 (including the Public Lecture Series and the regular Medieval Research Seminar Series) are available via the links on the left of this page. These events are open to all scholars and students of the medieval period. This year we are initiating an annual Richard III Public Lecture, to be held with the city's award-winning King Richard III Visitor Centre.

Members of the public are most welcome to attend the Medieval Research Centre Public Lecture Series and the annual Brixworth Lecture (2017 info).

The Medieval Research Centre regularly sponsors high profile panel sessions at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo, MI and at the Leeds International Medieval Congress.

In the past, a series of Specialist Interdisciplinary Graduate Workshops have been organised, designed to expose graduate students and early career fellows of medieval studies to different disciplinary approaches to evidence and interpretation. Past speakers have included: Dr Chris Fern (Staffordshire Hoard Project); Prof Faith Wallis (McGill, Canada); and Dr John Goodall (Country Life). We hope to initiate these again from the Autumn to include visits to the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge for a coins session. But do send in ideas to us for workshops you might like!
