Conference: ‘Transitions 2022’, Centre for Medieval Studies Postgraduate Conference, University of Bristol, 29th-30th April 2022

After the success of the 2021 ‘Rules and Regulations’ and ‘Disruption’ Conference, the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Bristol invites you to yet another highly topical conference in the longest standing medievalist PGR conference series: the 2022 Transitions Conference.

The principle of transition management in our global pandemic has become a highly relevant approach aiming to facilitate and accelerate sustainable transitions affecting workplace, politics, social interactions, and health.

How are such principles of transitions to be observed in the manifold institutions, organisations, cultures, etc., in medieval Britain, Europe, and beyond? How are those transitions represented in the many disciplines related to medieval studies from Musicology, History, Art History, Religion and Theology, Linguistics, Literature, to Law and Medicine, and how can our society profit from those observations today?

Key speakers:
Professor Simon Horobin (Magdalen College, Oxford)
Dr Jessica Barker (The Courtauld Institute of Art)
Dr Andy King (University of Southampton)

Refreshments served throughout conference thanks to the generous funding of the SWW DTP, Centre for Medieval Studies, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Department of English, Bristol Doctoral College.

Registration is now open.
