The Perth Medieval and Renaissance Group was founded in 1981. It welcomes to its meetings all who have an interest in the culture, life and history of medieval and early modern Europe. Membership is open to the general public, as well as to staff, graduates, postgraduates and undergraduates of all Australian universities.
Guests are welcome to attend all meetings. For details of upcoming events, see our 2013 Programme.
The Perth Medieval and Renaissance Group offers a forum to showcase local, national and international scholarship in the field by hosting seminar papers and presentations by local and visiting scholars throughout the year.
The highlight of the year is the annual symposium, attracting postgraduates, early career researchers and scholars of all stages from around the world to present their research. Themes in previous years have included such diverse areas as magic and marvels, houses, households and families and the world as stage.
Registration is now available for the annual symposium. See the website for details.
Seats are available for Michelle P. Brown’s public lecture on “The Luttrell Psalter”, which opens the symposium on Thursday 28 November 2013 at 6:00 PM. Please RSVP to Anne Scott by Monday 25 November.
Other events include the annual quiz night, musical performances, and poetry and dramatic readings.
