Run by the Late Antique and Medieval Postgraduate Society from the University of Edinburgh
The Late Antique and Postgraduate Society (LAMPS) at the University of Edinburgh is holding a one-day conference on the theme of Connections, Networks, and Contexts within the time period of Late Antique to Medieval. While interdisciplinary approaches to academic research may have been less common just a few years ago, there has recently been an increased interest in working across disciplinary boundaries. For the last five years, the Late Antique and Medieval Postgraduate Society from the University of Edinburgh has worked under a similar ethos, organising seminars for postgraduate students to present their work and exchange ideas across academic disciplines.
We welcome proposals for 20 minute papers and A3 posters from any relevant department, including Archaeology, History, Classics, History of Art, Literature, Language Studies, and Islamic Studies among others. Early career scholars and postgraduate students are invited to submit abstracts of up to 300 words for papers, and 200 words for posters, to firstname.lastname@example.org. To be considered, proposals must be received by 2 March 2015. Confirmations of acceptance will be sent at least one month in advance. This conference is being put on with the support of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.
