Castles in Medieval and Early Modern Culture
Saturday 5th March 2022
Our annual one-day conference at Lancaster Castle, run as part of the Northern Premodern Seminar, will focus on the significance of castles in medieval and early modern culture. What does a castle represent? How does the construction, maintenance, restoration, defence, invasion or appropriation of a castle change the relationship between those inside and outside its walls?
We invite proposals for short papers (15-20 minutes) on castles – medieval or early modern – from a range of disciplines including literature, performance, history and heritage studies, archeology and architecture.
Please send proposals (title, your contact details and outline of 250 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1st March 2022.
Papers will be selected to form 3 panels to complement our plenary lecture:
