DISPATCHES CATEGORISED: EVENTS & ACTIVITIES
→ Skip the prefatory remarks and go straight to the current month →
→ To the Calendar, for the purpose of going to a certain month →
“Events” is used in the loosest sense to include all manner of Medieval and Renaissance events and activities: talks, lectures, conferences, conference calls for papers, colloquia, workshops, seminars, exhibitions, concerts, performances, readings, re-enactments, discussions, links to radio and televised broadcast appearances, other calls for papers (for journals and books), new publications, notices, announcements (such as funding advertisements and awards), …
“Medieval and Renaissance” is similarly broadly construed: from Late Antique to Early Modern. Or local equivalents. Worldwide.
While giving priority of space to events here in Ireland, for obvious practical reasons, major international conferences (e.g. Kalamazoo) are also listed. Some smaller or newer events abroad have also been listed, to give a little variety, as it is – verily and forsooth – the spice of life.
Please do also consult
  • the CALLS FOR PAPERS & PUBLICATIONS category, which includes a number of further conference CFPs not cross-listed here, as well as journal CFPs
  • ARCHIVED PAST EVENTS (on this page) / a.k.a. EVENTS ARCHIVES (in the drop-down DISPATCHES CATEGORISED menu on your right)
  • the SEARCH box just above the MAIN MENU to your right: this performs a mini-Google-search on everything here on the FMRSI.

We depend on you for keeping us updated! If you are planning an event and would like information on it to be posted here, please do tell us about it and we will duly update this main EVENTS page. The information you provide will also first be cross-posted as a full entry in the NEWS, EVENTS & ACTIVITIES, and/or CALLS FOR PAPERS & PUBLICATIONS categories (to enable its archiving and ability to be searched for).

You might also be interested in subscribing to an RSS feed for instant updates whenever information appears on the Forum about a new event or activity.
