Cambridge Medieval History Graduate Workshop, University of Cambridge, Thursdays, 4:00 pm

The Cambridge Medieval History Graduate Workshop is inviting paper submissions for Easter Term 2023.

We host presentations on the cultures, economies, literature, material cultures, politics, thought, religions, and reception of the medieval world, which we define as broadly as possible as the global period between c.500 and c.1500. We welcome interdisciplinary scholarship and encourage submissions which stretch our conception of ‘medieval’ in time or space, from late antiquity to modern reception and from Scandinavia to the Middle East and beyond, or which deal with the practice of medieval history.

These short 15–20-minute workshop papers are excellent ways to share your work, gain presentation experience, and receive constructive feedback in a supportive environment run for and by graduate students. In terms of scope, we are looking for focused studies that offer snapshots into ongoing graduate research, and particularly encourage primary source work and case studies, rather than sweeping overviews of large topics or summaries of entire dissertations/theses.

We welcome submissions from Master’s and PhD students from any discipline or university, but especially encourage graduate students based in Cambridge to submit.
