Colloque (en ligne) — The 44th Battle Conference on Anglo-Norman Studies 2021

The format of the conference will be much as it is in person. There will be substantial papers lasting 40-45 minutes with a significant question time allotted to each paper. After each question time, the session will remain open for delegates to stay and talk informally with one another before the next session starts.  The zoom meeting will run continuously for the whole of each day. There will also be a poster session and any postgraduate students who wish to give a poster should email the address below.   In order to book your place, please register via the email address: battlewebsite@gmail.com  You will then be sent the details of the zoom meeting which we would be most grateful if you would not circulate. Only those applying via the conference email will receive a zoom link, and the use of an existing invitation by another person won’t be permitted.   But do encourage those who you know will be interested to contact me directly for the zoom link.   When you join the zoom meeting, you will need to be joining us with the recognisable name by which you booked your place, otherwise you won’t be admitted to the session.   If you do not yet have a zoom account, please join by following this link: https://zoom.us/freesignup/    This year there will be no charge for joining the Battle conference. The Allen Brown Committee, which has oversight of the conference, has made the decision that the Allen Brown Memorial Trust will cover the cost of the zoom account and the administrative burden of organising and putting on the conference.    We hope that by offering the conference free of charge, the Anglo-Norman community across the world will feel able to join with us in celebrating the wealth of talent that we have lined up for this year’s conference.    The Trust is an educational charity with the objective of supporting the study of the Anglo-Norman past, broadly defined. If you felt that you wished to support our endeavours with a financial contribution, please contact me. If you wish to give a sum which will ensure that a lecture is given annually in your name, then please do talk to me about it.    You may wish to note that the 2022 conference will take place (pandemic allowing) in Bonn between 21 and 26 July. More details will follow soon.
