Gender, Places, Spaces, Thresholds
This conference was on the theme of ‘Gender, Places, Spaces, Thresholds’ hosted by the long-running Gender and Medieval Studies Conference Series.
We were thrilled to host this conference and very pleased it proved to be such a great success. Over 1000 tweets appeared on the hashtag #GMSPlaces and some of those are collected here in this Storify story.
12th - 15th January 2017
Papers from postgraduate and early career scholars were welcomed and reduced conference rates were available. We welcome scholars from a range of disciplines, including history, literature, art history, archaeology and drama. The conference is also supported by a small travel fund, the Kate Westoby Fund. Students and unwaged scholars are invited to apply to the fund up to one month after they have attended the conference. The fund can only pay UK travel expenses. Available funds are limited and divided between all applicants and it is often not possible to pay claims in full. Because of prohibitive bank charges on international payments, claims can only be paid into UK bank accounts. For further inquiries about the fund please contact the treasurer Dr Isabel Davis
All queries should be directed to Diane Heath at firstname.lastname@example.org. Further details are available on the conference website.
