Inspiring international research exchange in Arthurian Studies, from the medieval to the modern period

Past Conferences and Symposiums

Members of the Centre for Arthurian Studies, both staff and postgraduate students, will be presenting at this conference, to be held at the University of Birmingham in September 2018. The Centre sponsors one of the sessions, and External board member Dr Samantha Rayner (UCL) will present some of her findings from her research in the Archives of the International Arthurian Society, now placed in the custody of the Centre. 

Building on a portfolio of long-standing international research collaboration, and sponsored by IMEMS (Institute for Medieval and Early Modern Studies, Bangor University and Aberystwyth University), the Centre for Arthurian Studies’ day symposium, ‘Chwedlau Arthur yng Nghymru a thu Hwnt / Arthurian Legends in Wales and Beyond’, took place on Thursday 28 June 2018

Held once every four years, the Congress provides a forum in which experts from across the full range of Celtic Studies — including literature, linguistics, history, archaeology, musicology and art history — come together to share the fruits of their work. Visit the conference website.

A session on animals and material culture in Arthurian studies is co-sponsored by the Centre in collaboration with Dr Renée Ward (University of Lincoln, UK) and Dr Melissa Ridley-Elmes (Lindenwood University, US)
