“On the Edge”

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Graduate School for Medieval Studies [GCMS], the department is proud to announce a postgraduate and early career researcher conference on the subject of boundaries, borders and the very concept of liminality.

‘Edges’ have defined human experience throughout the ages, crafting and defining the world we inhabit. In the medieval period boundaries defined relationships both high and low through etiquette and manner; society through hierarchy and class; administration through land holdings and legal rights; and most obviously, physically through the demarcation of space in the landscape and society e.g. religious and secular, common and private and rural and urban.
