Call for Papers: MEMS Festival 2021

MEMS Fest invites abstracts of up to 250 words for individual research papers of 20 minutes in length on any subject relating to the Medieval and Early Modern periods. The event aims to be an informal space in which postgraduate students, early career researchers, and academics can share ideas and foster conversations, whilst building a greater sense of community. 
Applications from a wide range of interdisciplinary topics are encouraged, including but not limited to politics, religion, economics, art, drama, literature, and domestic culture. The research can be in its earliest stages or a more developed piece. Undergraduate students in their final year of study are also welcome at the conference.
Also welcome are 700-word abstracts proposing a three-person panel, presenting on a specific subject or theme in Medieval or Early Modern studies. If you have an idea and would like it to be advertised, please contact the organizers (see below).
