Tuesday 4 July 2023, 19.00-20.00

Sponsor:York Medieval Press
Organiser:Pete Biller, Department of History, University of York
Moderator/Chair:Pete Biller, Department of History, University of York

York Medieval Press (YMP) was founded by the University of York's Centre for Medieval Studies and the publisher Boydell & Brewer in 1995. It has recently published its 100th volume. To mark this occasion, it proposes to hold a round table discussion followed by a drinks reception. The round table discussion will (i) look at what YMP has done and what it is doing, and (ii) use YMP as a case-study for a more general discussion about medieval studies and publication. The discussion will explore trends in published medieval research, as well as the potential for fruitful collaborations between university departments and publishing houses. Round table discussion participants will include the General Editor, a representative from Boydell, and several YMP series' editors and recent authors.

Participants include Peregrine Horden (University of Oxford / Royal Holloway, University of London), Paweł Kras (Katolicki Uniwersytet Lubelski Jana Pawła II), and Caroline Palmer (Boydell & Brewer, Woodbridge).
