Welcome to the Medieval and Renaissance Forum.
Plymouth State University’s Forum is the oldest conference of its type in New England. Students and scholars return to New Hampshire’s beautiful White Mountain region year after year for intellectual refreshment, collegial disagreement, and of course, the Medieval Feast. Whether you’re a first-timer or a venerable Friend of the Forum, we welcome you into our academic community.
We look forward to seeing new and old friends at our 34th gathering, focused upon the themes of “Travel, Contact, Exchange” to be held Friday and Saturday April 19-20, 2013. Register here.
● How, when, where, and why did cultural exchange happen?
● What are the roles of storytelling or souvenirs in experiences of pilgrimage or Crusade?
● What is exchanged, lost, or left behind in moments of contact?
● How do such moments of contact and exchange hold meaning today?
