Call For Papers

Join us online for the University of Kent’s seventh annual MEMS Summer Festival.


This two-day event celebrates Medieval and Early Modern history, 400 – 1800, and encourages applications from a wide range of interdisciplinary topics, including but not limited to, politics, religion, economics, art, drama, literature, and domestic culture. MEMS Fest aims to be an informal space in which postgraduate students, early career researchers, and academics can share ideas and foster conversations, whilst building a greater sense of community. Undergraduate students in their final year of study are also welcome at the conference.

We invite abstracts of up to 250 words for individual research papers of 20 minutes in length on ANY subject relating to the Medieval and Early Modern periods. The research can be in its earliest stages or a more developed piece.

We also encourage 700-word abstracts proposing a three-person panel, presenting on a specific subject or theme in Medieval or Early Modern studies. If you have an idea and would like us to advertise for it, please contact us at


Deadline for all Paper and Panel Proposals is Friday 30th April 2021. All applications must be sent to with ‘MEMS Fest 2021 Abstract’ as the subject of the email.

This opportunity allows you to showcase your research in a friendly environment and to network with fellow scholars from far-reaching institutions. For more information please contact us on Facebook, Twitter, or at Please do not hesitate to ask questions.

MEMS Festival 2021 is supported by the Centre of Medieval and Early Modern Studies at the University of Kent.
