‘Celebrating Academic and Early Career Research’
We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for The Society for Medieval Archaeology’s Annual Student Colloquium!
This will be held at the University of Hull, 11th – 13th November 2021.
The world continues to alter and the medieval period similarly saw a great deal of change and innovation. With this in mind, the colloquium this year will take a blended approach to allow researchers to network and celebrate their recent findings in a friendly and supportive environment. We will be hosting the event at the University of Hull but there will also be an opportunity to get involved in an online session as well.
We are inviting papers from students and early career researchers to discuss their work in all areas of medieval studies ranging from the 5th to the 16th century A.D.
Deadline for submissions: 1st October
Applications should be sent to R.Prescottfirstname.lastname@example.org
The programme will be released in the coming weeks. It will consist of two days of presentations and:
- A keynote presentation from a guest speaker
- A fieldtrip to explore some of the archaeology in the local area
- An optional dinner and networking event
The schedule and details regarding the programme will be released shortly.
