Middle Ages in the Modern World Conference (UK 6/29-7/2/15)

Been meaning to post this all month:

From H-Announce

MAMO2015 Medievalism Conference
Location: United Kingdom
Conference Date: 2015-06-29
Date Submitted: 2015-03-30
Announcement ID: 221593
The registration for our forthcoming conference, the Middle Ages in the Modern World (MAMO2015) is now open. Early bird registration closes on 29th May 2015.

Following the success of MAMO 2013, held at St Andrews last year, we are proud to announce that a follow-up conference will be held from Monday 29th June to Thursday 2nd July 2015 at the University of Lincoln. It will also be held in conjunction with Lincoln’s celebrations of the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, where Lincoln’s own copy of the Magna Carta will have returned and be back proudly on display in the castle.

As the title suggests, MAMO aims to explore the continued return to, and relevance of, the Middle Ages in the modern world, and why the period continues to attract audiences and scholars. Particularly, its interdisciplinary focus is designed to explore a range of areas, from popular culture to public history, from science to advertising, and even legal frameworks and political rhetoric. Given the popularity of medievalism as a growing discipline, and given the fantastic reception of the last conference, we are expecting a wide audience from a range of fields and disciplines including History, Literature, Film & Television, Video Games, Performing Arts, Drama, Languages, Museum Curation and more besides.

The provisional programme, and info on keynotes is available at, as well as links to the conference registration page and our social networks.

We hope to see you in Lincoln!
