The German Historical Institutes in London and Washington, D.C., are pleased to announce the tenth Medieval History Seminar, to be held in London from October 12 to 14, 2017. The seminar is designed to bring together Ph.D. candidates and recent Ph.D. recipients (2015-2016) in medieval history from American, British and German universities for three days of scholarly discussion and collaboration. They will have the opportunity to present their work to their peers as well as to distinguished scholars from both sides of the Atlantic. The Medieval History Seminar welcomes proposals from all areas of medieval history. Participation is not limited to historians working on German history or German-speaking regions of Europe. Nor is a particular epoch or methodological approach preferred. Applications from neighbouring disciplines are welcome if the projects have a distinct historical focus. The seminar is bi-lingual, and papers and discussions will be conducted both in German and English. Participants must have a good reading and oral comprehension of both languages.
