Leeds Medieval Congress, 1 – 4 July, 2024
The International Machaut Society are hoping to have a presence at the Leeds Medieval Congress, 1 – 4 July, 2024. The theme of the conference is crisis and we think that this could present interesting opportunities for those in Machaut studies and related areas. Papers concerning Machaut or his milieu/era could respond to any of the following ideas related to the theme of crisis:

  1. Plague
  2. The crisis of the new (new notation styles, new poetic styles, new ideas about authorship and authorial identity)
  3. Royal succession, patrons and patronage
  4. War and siege
  5. Environment and ecocriticism
  6. Perspectives on the ‘calamitous’ 14th century
  7. Decolonisation
  8. Issues relating to silenced or missing voices
  9. Other ideas relating to crisis not mentioned here
