Events at the Medieval Research Centre

Many events are affiliated with and organised by the Medieval Research Centre, and details of these (including the Public Lecture Series and the regular Medieval Research Seminar Series) can be found using the links on the left of this page. These events are open to all scholars and students of the medieval period.

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.

A series of Specialist Interdisciplinary Graduate Workshops are run throughout the year. These events aim to expose graduate students and early career fellows of medieval studies to different disciplinary approaches to evidence and interpretation. They run alongside the public lectures and are facilitated by visiting speakers. Recent speakers include: Dr Victoria Whitworth (UHI); Dr Jennifer O'Reilly (University College Cork) Dr Chris Fern (Staffordshire Hoard Project); Prof. Dominic Powlesland (The Landscape Research Centre) at The Prebendal Manor, Nassington; Prof Faith Wallis (McGill, Canada); Prof Martin Foys (Drew, USA); Dr Helen Geake (The British Museum / PAS); Dr John Goodall (Country Life).
