Transition Revisited: Continuing the Conversation

Wednesday 18 July 2012, 9.00AM

The theme of Transition in the Medieval World is a rich and versatile starting point for discussion, as well as being one which is demonstrably at the forefront of much emerging scholarship. The response from the academic community to the call for papers for ‘Transition in the Medieval World’ was overwhelming and, due to the plethora of papers and ideas offered, a supplementary one-day conference will take place in July in order to revisit and readdress the idea of transition in a medieval context.  This research day will provide an opportunity for postgraduates and early career researchers to discuss some of the issues raised by the conference in May, providing a forum that will further the interdisciplinary approach sought by these conferences and allowing a platform for new insights and approaches to the theme of transition across this varied field.   

The keynote lecture will be given by Professor Guy Halsall of the University of York.
