The ninth Oxford Medieval Graduate Conference, sponsored by the Society for the Study of Medieval Languages and Literature, will take place at the Ioannou Centre in Oxford on 4th and 5th April 2013. As each year, the theme is one word and, on this occasion, it is Skill. The organisers are pleased to announce that the draft programme is now available.
The conference is particularly aimed at early career scholars and graduate students working in medieval and early modern studies. It has a deserved reputation for lively -- and convivial -- interdisciplinary discussion.
Registration for the conference is now open. We are pleased to report that the fees have been kept at last year's levels. The full delegate rate is £15. Members of the Society can register at the reduced rate of £10. Graduates who are non-members wishing to join the Society and register for the conference at the same time can pay the combined rate of £25; this fee covers two years membership of the Society. Payment can be made either by cheque or via the button below.
There will be a conference dinner on the night of Thursday 4th April; costs and booking arrangements for that will be announced later. There will be some bursaries supplied by the Society to assist overseas graduate attendance. In addition to the Society's generosity, the organisers wish to acknowledge the support of Lincoln College, Oxford and of the Oxford Centre for Medieval History.
