The Thirteenth Century Conference – formerly Thirteenth Century England - has been running every two years for over thirty years. In 2015 the Conference moved from Aberystwyth to Cambridge, and we are back (after a delay due to the pandemic) for the XIXth edition on 12-13 September 2022. The Conference represents the largest forum devoted specifically to work on the Long Thirteenth Century and has over the years served to introduce many new scholars and new scholarship to those working on the period. In 2019, the conference was given a change of name to reflect a broadening in geographical scope and ambition.
The theme in 2022 is ‘Recovery and Renewal’ (provisional programme available here). There will be a keynote lecture from Professor John Arnold, University of Cambridge.
This is an in-person event (with one paper to be delivered remotely) at Selwyn College. Overnight accommodation at Selwyn is available. Delegates will not be able to join online.
If you have an enquiry about the conference, please contact Andrew Spencer ([email protected]).
The conference organizers gratefully acknowledge the support of the Trevelyan and Lightfoot Funds of the Faculty of History, University of Cambridge.
Graduate Student rate is available only to current or recent students i.e. those who had not been awarded the PhD by 1 January 2022. Please contact Chris Briggs ([email protected]) when booking to provide confirmation of eligibility.
