Medieval Studies' Day (1/2 ECTS)
Yearly open day for all members of the Research School, including Flemish colleagues. By turns organized by one of the participant universities; sometimes by an associated Flemish university. Usually, the program comprises two keynote lectures around a chosen theme, followed (or preceded) by 10-20 short papers on a variety of subjects, presented in a number of parallel sessions by PhD students and/or tenured staff.
The Research School for Medieval Studies’ Medieval Studies’ Day 2023 will take place on 3 November 2023 at Utrecht University. The theme is Public Engagement, with plenary sessions focusing on the question why and how the medieval matters to contemporary society.
As is customary, there will also be room for (junior) members of the Research School to present their research. To this end, we welcome 15-minute papers on all topics with a medieval focus. We primarily invite proposals from PhD candidates and early career researchers. NB: these papers need not be connected to the theme of Public Engagement.
The Call for Papers is now open and will close on 30 September. There will be room for ten presentations in total. Would you like to present a paper? Please send a title and abstract (max. 250 words), in Dutch or English, to this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Researchers who will have submitted a proposal will be contacted by the organising committee shortly after 30 September.
