Organised by: Lincoln Record Society

Hosted by: Marianne Wilson, Department of History, University of York; Paul R. Dryburgh, The National Archives, Kew

The Lincoln Record Society was founded in 1910 with the objective of editing and publishing historic records relating to the ancient diocese of Lincoln. The ancient diocese covered not only Lincolnshire, but also Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Rutland, Oxfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Huntingdonshire and parts of Hertfordshire. The Lincoln Record Society would like to bring together medievalists who are working on records from within the ancient diocese to discuss their interests and develop connections and collaborations which we hope will form a wider research community over time. We particularly welcome participation from PhD students and early career researchers but would be pleased to hear from researchers at any career stage.

The discussion will be led by Dr Marianne Wilson, Communications Officer and Dr Paul Dryburgh, Honorary Secretary. The discussion will last for an hour and then there will be an opportunity to have more informal ‘virtual drinks’ with Marianne, Paul and other members of the Society.

Book Launch - The Material Fall of Roman Britain, 300-525 CE by Robin Fleming

Monday 5 July 2021

18:30-19:30

Organised by: Combined Academic Publishers in coordination with the University of Pennsylvania Press

Speakers: Robin Flemming, Department of History, Boston College, Massachusetts & Alex Woolf, Department of Mediaeval History, University of St Andrews

Although lowland Britain in 300 CE had been as Roman as any province in the empire, in the generations on either side of 400, urban life, the money economy, and the functioning state collapsed. Many of the most quotidian and fundamental elements of Roman-style material culture ceased to be manufactured. Skills related to iron and copper smelting, wooden board and plank making, stone quarrying, commercial butchery, horticulture, and tanning largely disappeared, as did the knowledge standing behind the production of wheel-thrown, kiln-fired pottery and building in stone. No other period in Britain’s prehistory or history witnessed the loss of so many classes of once-common skills and objects. While the reasons for this breakdown remain unclear, it is indisputable the collapse was foundational in the making of a new world we characterize as early medieval.

In this session, that continues the fringe event that we presented at the vIMC 2020, we invite scholars to participate directly with any questions they may have, either through video calls or through chat, that we will then respond to live.

We want to hear about the issues that matter to you. Whether you’re an early career scholar or recent graduate wondering where to start, or you’re completing your fifth book, we welcome all questions and queries.

Questions or topics might include (for instance)

  • Proposing and pitching your work
  • Adapting a thesis into a monograph
  • Editing of collected essay volumes
  • Marketing your work
  • Manuscript preparation tips
  • Legal issues, such as permission to reuse your work elsewhere
  • Publisher services / added value

This session is open to any and all scholars who want to participate or merely listen in.

Our 2021 IMC book raffle will also be organized among all participants attending the Q&A, with a chance to win a book of your choice for free from our IMC Leeds Conference Offer  (max. retail price: EUR 150 excl. VAT).  At the end of the event, the winner will be announced, so stay tuned until the Q&A is over!

We will try to go through as many as we can, and we will also be online on the Brepols exhibitor page for the remaining days of the conference if you want to get in touch; or send any of us an email: Rosie Bonté (rosie.bonte@brepols.net) or Guy Carney (guy.carney@brepols.net) or Jirki Thibaut (jirki.thibaut@brepols.net)

How were borders formed and maintained, how did they change over time, and how did they influence identity formation, cultural production, and the mobility of people and ideas? What was the role of border cities in managing cultural exchange? How does the medieval context illuminate Britain’s border politics post-2020? We want to plan a series of events that will explore some of these ideas and lead to outcomes including publications and research grants.

With other historians at Cambridge, Oxford and Vienna, it has set up the Anthropocene Histories seminar at the Institute of Historical Research (https://www.history.ac.uk/partnership-seminars/anthropocene-histories) in which medievalists play a leading role (Sophie Page, Amanda Power, John Sabapathy).

Historical Catastrophe Studies – Historische Katastrophenforschung: a new book series for a dynamic field

 The investigation of catastrophes from a historical perspective is now a very dynamic and interdisciplinary field of research. History, archaeology, social anthropology, sociology, literary studies, philosophy, theology, climatology and geography are just some of the disciplines making vital contributions. Together they seek to understand how past and present societies have perceived, interpreted, coped with and remembered extreme events and what kinds of long-term adaptation strategies have been developed.  

 The IMC topic “Climates” could hardly be more fitting to this theme and this roundtable discussion introduces “Historical Catastrophe Studies – Historische Katastrophenforschung”, a newly established book series and forum for this exciting research. 

 Participants are: Katrin Kleemann and Peter Brown (two authors with forthcoming books in the series), Christian Rohr and Dominic Collet (co-editors of the series) and Robert Forke (De Gruyter, Berlin/Boston). After an introduction by the discussants, the floor will be opened for questions and comments from the audience. This event will be of interest to researchers working on disaster studies or related fields from a broad spectrum of disciplinary backgrounds. 

 

This fringe event is organised by the organisers/hosts listed above and will be hosted via their own platform. Access to all fringe events will be available for registered delegates within the virtual event platform.
