The National University of Ireland, Galway, Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Medieval Conference, November 12-14th 2010.
We would like to invite all postgraduate students of medieval studies to Imbas, an interdisciplinary medievalists’ conference being held in the Moore Institute at NUI Galway from November 12-14th 2010. This conference welcomes delegates at all stages of their research from all areas of medieval studies including languages, history, literature, art, archaeology, palaeography and philosophy.

The theme for 2010 is Representations: Image, Word, Artefact, and we are delighted to announce that Professor Michelle P. Brown will be our keynote speaker.

Delegates are encouraged to view the theme as a broad suggestion rather than in any way restrictive, and all variations on this theme will be welcome.

A selection of papers will be published in our peer-reviewed Imbas Journal. This journal will be made available via our website and open-access journal databases. All panels will be recorded and made available as podcasts.

Abstracts of 250 words for a twenty minute paper must be submitted before September 30, 2010. Abstracts can be sent to imbasnuig@gmail.com or forwarded to Imbas/Trish Ní Mhaoileoin, c/o Roinn na Gaeilge, Áras na Gaeilge, Ollscoil na hÉireann, Gaillimh, Éire.
