Durham University
Friday, 3 July 2015
 
Researchers from the Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies and the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Durham University are pleased to announce a symposium on medieval and early modern ecologies, timed to coincide with the 2015 meetings of the International Medieval Congress in Leeds and the Early Modern Studies Conference in Reading. Building on the work of Durham’s Ecologies and the Arts research cluster, the aim of this event is to provide a forum for discussion and exchange for scholars of these periods working in the growing fields of ecocriticism and animal studies. Eight speakers from a range of disciplinary backgrounds will join keynote speaker, Gillian Rudd (University of Liverpool), in presenting their research to an international and interdisciplinary audience.
 
Proposals for papers on any topic within the scope of the symposium are invited from scholars at all career levels. Please email your abstract of no more than 300 words, as well as contact and affiliation details, to Megan Cavell (megan.cavell@durham.ac.uk) by 1 February 2015.
