Call for papers: 24th Medieval Studies Day, Leiden

05 November 2018

The 24th Medieval Studies Day will take place on Friday 30 November 2018, at Leiden University. The plenary session will be organized in the morning, in the Lorentzhall of the Kamerlingh Onnes building (Law Faculty); after lunch project presentations will be held in various class rooms of the recently renovated P.J. Veth building (near the Hortus Botanicus). Both locations are in the heart of academic Leiden, and at a walking distance from each other and the railway station.

During the plenary session two key note lectures will be given around the theme of ‘The Global Middle Ages/Globalising the Middle Ages’. One will be delivered by Hilde de Weerdt, Professor of Chinese History at Leiden University, the other by Peter Hoppenbrouwers, Professor of Medieval History at Leiden University.

It will also be possible to visit the famous visit to the famous Bibliotheca Thysiana, where you will be taken round by one of the curators (Paul Hoftijzer and Wim van Anrooij).
