About

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 35th gathering, focused upon the themes of “Artists, Authors, Audiences” to be held Friday and Saturday April 25-26, 2014.
