‘Writing Medieval History’ : Organising a Symposium

In November of last year, Dr Renee Ward encouraged a group of MA Medieval Studies students to organise a symposium for the community of medievalists in Lincoln.


Myself and eight other students jumped at the chance to get involved and have worked hard to organise Writing Medieval History’a half day symposium that will take place on Friday 5th May 2017 in the UoL Minerva Building.

We are delighted to host a range of undergraduates, postgraduates and medieval lecturers who take different methodological and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of medieval history.

Our aim is to provide a space for individuals to share and develop ‘works in progress’ as well as gain confidence in writing and speaking about medieval history. We think this will be especially beneficial for undergraduate and postgraduate students working towards completing a dissertation, as it is the perfect opportunity to get constructive feedback from peers.


Symposium Committee

The symposium committee convened on Wednesday to finish organising some final details, but overall we feel well prepared and excited to host the event!

On behalf of the committee, I would like to thank Dr Renée Ward and Dr Antonella Liuzzo Scorpo for their invaluable support in the organising process: we really appreciate it.




It is a free event and all are welcome, so please register on our website and come and say hello on Friday 5th May! We will be offering a buffet lunch from 12pm and tea, coffee and other refreshments will be available all day.
