This year the International Medieval Congress takes place in Leeds on 1st–4th July. Over the course of four days, medievalists from across the globe will gather to discuss all aspects of Medieval Studies.

‘Read free extracts from selected titles, ranging from Catherine Hanley’s Matilda to Nicholas. J. Higham and Martin J. Ryan’s classic Anglo-Saxon World

This year the IMC’s special thematic focus is on ‘Materialities’ – exploring how conceptions of matter, and matter itself, shaped the creation of the material world, regimes of labour and supply, connectivity, entanglements, trade networks, movements of things and people, concepts of agency and network theory, and constructed notions of the sublime, of replication, and of ‘reality’, as an abstract concept and category during the Middle Ages.
