North & South, East & West

Call for Papers and Posters

Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Conference

North & South, East & West

Movements in the Medieval World

30-31 May 2009

Migration, travel and trade, the development of ideas and establishment of
organisations - the medieval world was shaped by physical and ideological

The University of Nottingham's Institute for Medieval Research invites you
to submit abstracts for papers and posters for a two-day conference on
these and other aspects of this world in motion. Under this year's theme
of North & South, East & West, we aim to bring together the wide
geographic area, vast range of disciplines, and variety of techniques
which the study of the medieval world encompasses to explore new and
collaborative approaches.

The conference will be held over two days and will include paper
presentations, a poster session and two plenary lectures.

Costs: Students £10 Staff £20

This includes coffee, tea, and lunch for both days, and an evening
reception with a guided tour of the university's archaeological museum.

There is a possibility that the conference will result in

an on-line publication of the proceedings

Abstracts (maximum 300 words) are to be sent to Dayanna Knight
(acxdk1@nottingham.ac.uk) before 6th February 2009, stating clearly
whether you are offering a paper or poster.

If you have any queries, please contact Marjolein Stern
