Exeter’s Centre for Medieval Studies working in collaboration with medievalists at Bristol and Cardiff have secured £45K to establish a regional research cluster to work within the new Great West 4 Alliance established by the leading universities of the South West and Wales.
The cluster has identified three distinctive themes in which to develop new collaborative projects: (1) Wales and the South West of England; 2) Sex and Gender; 3) Authority and Ethics.
During 2014/15 the cluster will convene a series of workshop, seminars and conferences at Exeter, Bristol and Cardiff. We will also sponsor three panels at the International Medieval Congress, University of Leeds in July.
