Registration for Writing England 2010

Registration for Writing England 2010, University of Leicester
28th-30th April 2010, is now open. The conference draws on different
approaches and perspectives, aiming to investigate the writers,
compilers, manufacture and reception of books in England between c.
1000 and 1400. 'Writing England' will contribute to an
interdisciplinary study of book cultures in the Middle Ages, and
allow for cross-fertilization of ideas and research interests across
the period. Speakers include colleagues working in Historical and
Literary subject across Europe. The conference is generously
sponsored by AMARC and the School of English.

Plenary speakers are: Elaine Treharne (Florida State University);
Jocelyn Wogan-Browne (University of York); Tony Edwards (De Montfort
University, Leicester)

We have a bright new web site which contains information on
registration (closing 31 March 2010), accommodation and travel
information. We offer discounted rates to AMARC members and PhD
students. The conference is residential with single day options if
required, and will take place at the Beaumont Hall at the heart of
Leicester botanical gardens.

Please circulate as widely as possible.

On behalf of the organising committee, I look forward to welcoming
you in Leicester.
