The Aberystwyth Medieval Conference is an annual event taking place at the end of June under the auspices of the Centre for Research in Historiography and Historical Cultures. Organised by PhD students in the Department of History and Welsh History, this conference welcomes postgraduate and early career scholars working on the medieval past from a variety of disciplinary perspectives – including but not limited to history, literary studies, art history, geography and archaeology – to offer a comparative and trans-regional approach.
In 2018 the conference will focus on notions of origins. Stories about roots have been at the core of every society of which we know. Whether describing peoples, places, movements or ideas, these narratives reflected and helped shape debates about identity and community. Where a society, idea or movement came from, the past it superseded and the future it promised to create, became a means for defining a community’s distinctiveness. Origins were recovered and imagined, their meaning debated and redefined.
