End date: 30/11/2015
Funding: 55000 SEK


As a means of revitalizing and continuing an institution established by David Lomax and Richard Fletcher, the Centre for Medieval Studies, the Department of History and the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study shall celebrate a conference with the theme Enemies and Friends in Stockholm at the Swedish History Museum on March 14-16, 2016. This conference is intended to inaugurate a new international and interdisciplinary scholarly society, Historians of Medieval Iberia, and will hopefully be the first in a series of conferences to be held in different countries in the future. There is a need for Scandinavian medievalists working on the Iberian Peninsula to interact with colleagues from the Hispanic-Lusophone as well as the Anglophone areas. This will prove a fruitful event for debate and to create new networks and possibilities for collaborations on larger research projects.
