Leeds International Medieval Conference, 6-9 July 2020

“Mike Clover and the World of Late Antiquity”

Sponsored by the Mike Clover Memorial Consortium.

Following the untimely death of Mike Clover, a much beloved and
admired scholar of Late Antiquity in general and the Vandals in
particular, his students, colleagues, and friends are proposing a
series of conference sessions in his honor for the Leeds International
Medieval Conference, 6-9 July 2020. Given Mike’s interests, the theme
for next year’s conference, “Borders,” makes this initiative even more
appropriate. We would welcome submissions on the kinds of topics that
Mike liked to work on, things like barbarians/Vandals, prosopography,
the Historia augusta, Ammianus, hagiography, coinage, and late Roman
history in general.

Submissions (title and brief abstract) can be sent to Ralph Mathisen,
>. The deadline for
submissions in September 21. Subsequently, the wheels at the IMC will
grind slow but fine, and the IMC states, “we anticipate being able to
notify paper/session proposers whether their proposal has been
accepted into the programme by the December prior to the IMC.”
