Events

Many events are organised by or affiliated with the Medieval Research Centre, and these events are open to all scholars and students interested in the medieval period. We also initiate our annual Richard III Public Lecture, which is held in the city's award-winning King Richard III Visitor Centre.

The Medieval Research Centre regularly sponsors high profile panel sessions at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo, MI and at the Leeds International Medieval Congress.

In the past, a series of specialist interdisciplinary graduate workshops have been organised, designed to expose graduate students and early career fellows of medieval studies to different disciplinary approaches to evidence and interpretation. Past speakers have included: Dr Chris Fern (Staffordshire Hoard Project); Professor Faith Wallis (McGill, Canada); and Dr John Goodall (Country Life). We hope to initiate these again from the Autumn, to include visits to the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge for a coins session. Do send us ideas for workshops you might like.
