The Cambridge Medieval History Graduate Workshop is inviting paper submissions for Autumn 2022 (Michaelmas Term).

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 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. We welcome submissions from master’s and PhD students from any discipline or university, but especially encourage graduate students based in Cambridge to submit. Accepted speakers will have the opportunity to be featured on our blog, Camedieval (https://camedieval.wordpress.com).

The workshop meets alternate Thursdays, 4–5pm. These are hybrid sessions with the option to join us in person in Cambridge and on Zoom, subject to change based on Covid-19 guidance. The first session will be on 20 October. In each session we will have two 15–20-minute papers, followed by in-person socialising and refreshments.

Please send abstracts of not more than 250 words and a short bio to all four coconvenors by 16 September 2022 to: cambridgemedieval@gmail.com 

The Camedieval blog is always open for submissions.
