History, Community and Identity in the Medieval World (c.800-1300), online conference, 23-25 June 2021.

The 4th Aberystwyth Medieval Conference for postgraduates will explore the relationship between history, community and identity, how those writing about the past helped to construct the identity of their communities, and how far their vision of communal identity and its relationship with the outside world reflects the experience of real medieval societies.

Elizabeth Boyle (Early Irish, NUI Maynooth)
Darius von Güttner-Sporzynski (History, Melbourne)
Justin Lake (International Studies, Texas A&M)
