Imbas 2010

We would like to invite all postgraduate students of medieval studies to Imbas 2010, an interdisciplinary postgraduate medievalists’ conference, to be held on 12th – 14th November 2010 in NUI Galway, Ireland. 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 of the University of London 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 NMhaoileoin, c/o Roinn na Gaeilge, as na Gaeilge, Ollscoil na hreann, Gaillimh, re.
