LUCAS Conference 'Practices in Comparative Medievalism'

Friday 23 September 2022
Cleveringaplaats 1
2311 BD Leiden

Medievalism is the area of academic study that investigates the reception and reconstruction of the medieval past since the Middle Ages came to an end.

This one-day conference, organised by the Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society (LUCAS), invites you to share your research ideas and results in practices of comparative medievalism in arts and culture. We therefore invite contributions of papers that analyse cultural representations of the Middle Ages from the Early Modern period until the present.

This conference is organised to provide an environment for students, researchers, and enthusiasts to discuss ideas and foster contributions in the area of comparative medievalism. The event will take place at Leiden University, the Netherlands. Leiden is a beautiful city with a fascinating medieval heritage of its own.
