We are a multi-disciplinary conference, so all aspects of the medieval (c. AD 500 to c. 1500) and early modern (c.1400 to c.1700) worlds are of interest to us, including non-Western subjects,. However for 2020 we are particularly keen on papers relating to:

• Shakespeare and his Contemporaries, and the Mediterranean

• Shakespeare and his Contemporaries, and Material History

• The Joy of Text? Teaching Shakespeare and Early Modern Drama Today

• All aspects of Early Modern Women Writers (c.1400 to c.1700)

• Medieval Travel and Tales of Travel

• The Byzantine Image in the West

• The Medieval World

• Renaissance Culture and Society and other aspects of the medieval and/or renaissance world
