Workshop on Medieval Germany


6 May 2022

Conveners: Len Scales (Durham University) and Marcus Meer (GHIL)
Invited Speakers: Eva Schlotheuber (Düsseldorf) and Wolfram Drews (Münster)
Venue: German Historical Institute London
Organised by the German Historical Institute London in co-operation with the German Historical Institute Washington and the German History Society.


This one-day workshop on the history of medieval Germany (broadly defined) will provide an opportunity for researchers in the field from the UK, continental Europe, and the USA to meet in a relaxed and friendly setting and to learn more about each other’s work. Proposals for short papers of 10–15 minutes are invited from researchers at all career stages with an interest in any aspect of the history of medieval Germany. Participants are encouraged to concentrate on presenting work in progress, highlighting research questions and approaches, and pointing to as yet unresolved challenges of their projects. Presentations will be followed by a discussion.

Students and researchers interested in medieval German history are also very welcome to attend. There is no charge for attendance but because of limited space booking is essential. Please contact Kim König:
