Hype, Transmission, and Truth in the Middle Ages

University of Bristol’s Centre for Medieval Studies 24th Annual
Postgraduate Conference

Friday 23rd – Saturday 24th February 2018
Arts Complex, Woodland Road, University of Bristol

Keynote Speaker: Dr Catherine Nall (Royal Holloway)

In light of contemporary anxieties surrounding the delineation of ‘truth’ and ‘untruth’, this year’s conference aims to encourage reflection on and exploration of these notions through the lens of the Middle Ages. How were medieval concepts, truths, and beliefs conceived, recorded, transmitted, received and understood? How were these processes influenced by religion, society, culture, politics, economics, and the environment?

This year, the Bristol Centre for Medieval Studies annual conference will welcome speakers from around the globe and across the arts and humanities. The programme will be published at the end of January, and includes sessions on such diverse topics as medieval news, Christianity and Truth, Historical Truths, Romance and Myth, Cultural Exchange, Magic and Science, Networks of Inclusion and Exclusion, and many more.
