Professor Foys will be running two Specialist Interdisciplinary Graduate Workshops at Leicester, on the theme of Digital Medievalisms.

Places are limited, and first priority goes to MA, PhD and Early Career researchers currently studying at Leicester, but students from further afield, especially in Birmingham and Nottingham are welcome to attend. The workshops will focus on medieval evidence but the issues will be of wider relevance, so students studying other periods are very welcome too.


To reserve a FREE place, please contact Owen:


1 Digital Medievalisms: the way we work(ed)

Here we will look at how digital resources have worked, and are changing, using the DM project as a case study alongside a 'sandbox' of maps and texts. Participants are encouraged to bring their own specific projects, to discuss how they are using digital resources in old or new ways, and how they wish they could use them

Monday 10 December

Location: Seminar Room at No. 3-5 Salisbury Road
2 The Nature of Medieval Media: Material, Ecology, History

This workshop will consider how understanding medieval expresson – in terms of media history and theory – can change the way we understand it. Attention will be paid to traditional texts, but also very non-canonical forms of expression (eg: bells). Students are encouraged to bring their own specific projects, that may connect to ideas of media  (beyond, of course, the old model of oral –> written texts).
Tuesday 11 December

Location: Seminar Room at No. 1 Salisbury Road.
