The Birkbeck Medieval Seminar is an annual one-day seminar in which leading scholars present thought-provoking papers on a current research theme in the history and culture of the Middle Ages. It is an environment for accessing and debating current research themes across disciplines. It is intended as a forum to bring together staff and students involved in Birkbeck's interdisciplinary MA in Medieval Literature and Culture and the MA in Medieval History, as well as anyone with an interest in the Middle Ages. This year it is co-organised with Birkbeck's Department of History of Art and is supported by The Murray Bequest, established in memory of Professor Peter Murray, the department's founder.
