International Medieval Congress, University of Leeds: Britain’s Border Geographies
University of Leeds 4-7 July 2022
This series of three panels is sponsored by the Centre for Medieval Studies, University of Bristol, and the Medieval and Early Modern Centre, University of Sydney.
The aim of these panels is to explore aspects of identity formation in the multicultural border zones of medieval Britain, including England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, the North Atlantic coast and the English Channel linking Britain to France and the Low Countries. A wide range of critical approaches is encouraged, including, but not limited to, eco-criticism, cultural geography, gender theory, book history, historiography, literary criticism, linguistics, postcolonial theory.
We welcome submissions for 20-minute papers from all disciplines. Proposals from postgraduates and early-career scholars are particularly welcome.
Abstracts of up to 100 words can be sent to: Helen Fulton (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jan Shaw (email@example.com) by Friday 10 September 2021. Please include your name and full contact details, including institutional address, and any AV equipment you are likely to need.
