We wish to invite you, your colleagues and your research students to submit proposals for papers to present at the 5th Annual Multi-Disciplinary Conference on Medieval, Renaissance and Early Modern Studies, taking place in Nicosia, Cyprus, next April (2017).

The deadline for proposals is 31 December 2016.

Officially entitled “Othello’s Island”, the conference is a truely multi-disciplinary event, looking at all aspects of the Medieval, Renaissance and Early Modern periods, including art, literature, history, culture etc.

Being located in Nicosia, our delegates also have an opportunity to explore the medieval sites of this fascinating city, from the stunning Byzantine Museum to the richly carved sculptures of the French gothic cathedral, and we will also be taking a trip out of town to visit other medieval and renaissance sites of beauty and interest in Cyprus.

The conference is held at the Centre for Visual Arts and Research (CVAR) in the heart of Nicosia’s medieval Old Town, and is organised as a collaboration between academics from CVAR, Northern Arizona University, Sheffield Hallam University, SOAS University of London, the University of Kent, and the University of Leeds.

For research students and early career academics, we are able to offer a limited amount of free accommodation for the duration of the conference to speakers aged 35 or under.

Our keynote speaker for 2017 will be Professor Patricia F. Brown (Princeton, USA).

With regards,

Professor James Fitzmaurice (Northern Arizona University)

Dr Michael Paraskos (SOAS University of London)
