Preliminary Announcement and Call for Papers:
The Fifteenth Century Conference (Open Theme)
University of Aberdeen, 4-6 September 2014
Deadline: 1 March 2014
The annual gathering known as the Fifteenth Century Conference was first held in Cardiff, 1970. In 2014 the conference will meet at the University of Aberdeen. It is expected that there will be plenary sessions, parallel panel sessions of 20-30 minute papers, and opportunity to showcase collaborative projects. The theme is open and, as is customary, the chronological boundaries of c.1400 and c.1500 will be interpreted generously. Professor Christine Carpenter will offer the keynote lecture. It is hoped to offer some reduction in fee for current and recent research students giving a paper.
Aberdeen is unusually well-served for travel, with regular direct flights from most UK cities, and from Dublin, Frankfurt, Paris and Amsterdam. There is a frequent rail service, including overnight sleeper options from London. For further details see: www.abdn.ac.uk/maps/travel.php
