These seem to come around faster and faster – or maybe I’m just getting older… But it’s time for the sixth annual Revealing Records conference at King’s College London. This is a great forum in which to hear new graduate work based on original records. I recommend it if you’re in London later this month.

Here’s the blurb, courtesy of Kenneth Duggan’s academia page, where you can find a full program for the day:

Revealing Records VI

Now in its sixth year, the Revealing Records postgraduate research conference series brings together postgraduate researchers working with a wide range of sources from across the medieval world to share challenges and approaches through the presentation of their research. Featuring keynote papers from Dr Alice Rio (King’s College London) and Professor Paul Brand (All Souls College, Oxford) and a closing address delivered by Daniel Hadas (King’s College London)

Location: The Weston Room in the Maughan Library, King’s College London

When: 9.00-6.00, Friday 23rd May, 2014

To register, please email the conference organisers at the above address. Registration is free.

This has just crossed my inbox, and although I can’t make it personally on this occasion, I’ve been a couple of times before. (In fact, it’s getting to the stage where to say “I spoke at the first one” might really count for something!) I can vouch that it is a meeting worth going to, so here it is: Revealing Records V. If you are a postgraduate student (or you have postgraduate students) working on any source/s that might be classes as ‘records’ I recommend heading to KCL in late May to meet and discuss with like-minded people. The quality of the papers will be good and the company cheery. Send your 200 word abstract to revealingrecords@gmail.com by 14 December.
