This year’s conference will be held at the University of Reading’s ICMA Centre from Thursday 6th September to Saturday 8th September. We have a very exciting programme including sessions covering a wide range of late medieval themes, from political to art-historical; and plenary lectures from Chris Briggs, Anne Curry, Chris Given-Wilson and Elizabeth New. We will also be celebrating the fifteenth volume of The Fifteenth Century at a reception jointly hosted by Boydell & Brewer and the ICMA Centre.
Friday will include a tour of the newly re-opened Reading Abbey and its quarter, and the re-designed gallery at Reading Museum with some gems from the University of Reading’s Special Collections. A drinks reception will be held at Reading Museum before the conference dinner, will be held at the Victoria Hall in Reading’s Town Hall on the Friday evening – please remember to select this on the registration form.
