This will be the inaugural symposium of Networks and Neighbours. This
year’s symposium will be held at the University Leeds the weekend
before the International Medieval Congress, so, Thursday and Friday
27-28 June, 2013. There will be five panels, each moderated by an
established scholar, with Ph.D. students and postdocs presenting
papers. The deadline for 200 to 300-word abstract submission is the
end of February. Three nights of accommodation (Thursday until the
start of the IMC) and all meals will be provided for speakers and
moderators, with the chance of flight-reimbursement as well.

To explain N&N very briefly…N&N was formed last year at Leeds with
colleagues from Brazil. The intention is to establish a new
international program in early medieval studies that is in
intellectual dialogue with the Transformation of the Roman World, HERA
and T&I (in all of which our convenors are participants). N&N hopes
to engage the significant work of those projects and from that
dialectical relationship develop novel questions, answers,
methodologies, historiographies, and dare I say, theories about what
is ‘early medieval’. The results of the aforesaid projects have been
fundamental in shifting the way we think about our topics of research,
and by working together with the existing and former members of these
groups, plus a new collection of international partners, it is hoped
that N&N can provide a platform for a new generation of thinking in
early medieval studies.
