Medievalism Transformed

17th Annual Medievalism Transformed Conference, 3-4 September 2021

Call for papers deadline: 2nd July 2021
Keynote speaker: TBD
Location: Online


Medievalism Transformed is an annual event hosted by Bangor University, School of English, that aims to explore the medieval world and its sustained impact on subsequent culture and thought. It brings together postgraduates and early career researchers from across the United Kingdom and worldwide.

This conference is unique not only because it welcomes research from a multitude of medieval studies’ disciplines, but also because of its interest in the sustained fascination with and impact of the Middle Ages in later centuries. 

Given how medievalism has been – and continues to be – used in the suppression of marginalised voices, we are eager to invite graduate scholars, established voices, and those who are eager to participate in furthering this important conversation around cultural appropriation in the medieval world. 

Medievalism Transformed 2021 is dedicated to dissecting the complicated relationship between the Middle Ages and appropriation. Our goal is to explore examples of appropriation and misappropriation in the medieval world and how perceptions of the Middle Ages have been (mis)appropriated in later centuries.
