CFP: Medieval Bodies Ignored

Rose Sawyer's picture

Greetings Medievalists!

I would just like to let you all know that the deadline for abstracts for the Medieval Bodies Ignored conference (University of Leeds, May 4th-6th) has been extended because of the ongoing strike action at some UK universities, which we realise will have disrupted people's working patterns.

The new deadline is midday 11th of March (GMT). Abstracts should be sent to

The full CfP can be found on our website:

We are accepting papers on any topic that fits the broad theme and we really look forward to seeing everyone's varied takes on bodies that are ignored, either by medieval society or modern scholarship. We are also keen to incorporate environmental and non-human bodies into our discussion. Our intention is to encompass a wide and inclusive variety of 'bodies' into the discussions at this conference.

We look forward to receiving your abstracts!

Best wishes

Medieval Bodies Ignored Organising Committee
