CFP: 10th conference of the Medieval Chronicle Society.

From Prof Dr Graeme Dunphy:

September is upon us, and since many of you will now be making your plans for the next academic year, this seems like a good time to remind you of our chronicles conference, which will be taking place in Nancy (France) in July next year. A few weeks ago I was able to travel through to Nancy to meet our hosts, Isabelle Guyot-Bachy and her excellent team at the University of Lorraine. Their plans are well advanced, and they are looking forward to receiving you. As the former capital of the duchy of Lorrain, Nancy is a lively and important provincial municipality with a magnificent Baroque centre, and I had a wonderful time exploring the old streets. I know you will enjoy our conference dinner under the stars on the Place Stanislas.

The event will run from the 10th to the 13th July, with working sessions from Monday to Wednesday. On Thursday there will be an excursion to Metz, where a tour of the medieval town promises to be an exciting day out. The conference will be hybrid, so it will be possible to hear the keynote speakers and participate in the sessions on-line. But we hope that most of you will want to be there in person to enjoy the socializing and sight-seeing which have always been part of the chronicle conference experience. 

The General Meeting of the Medieval Chronicle Society will be held on the Wednesday in the plenary room, and it, too, can also be attended either in person or on-line. I will send out an invitation and agenda for that nearer the time.

The conference website is now online. It would help the organizers greatly if you can register early. Feel free to drop Isabelle a line if you have any questions or difficulties.
