Registration is now open for the annual Medieval and Early Modern Students Association conference, which runs from 11th to 12th July at Hatfield College

This will focus on how people in the Medieval and Early Modern World engaged with, understood, and interpreted the past, in order to explore the ways in which they perceived and sought to shape their own world. In doing so, we will also be able to gain a greater awareness of how past worlds still contribute to changing our own present perceptions.

The conference will include two full days of panels, and two key note lectures by Dr Helen Smith from the University of York, and Dr Len Scales from Durham University. There will also be an opportunity to visit Durham Cathedral and the surrounding World Heritage Site.

A full programme is available now. The fee for registration is £10.00. For further information email
