Fifth Fifteenth-Century Conference
(sponsored by the Richard III Society and the Program in Medieval Studies and the English Department of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

Monticello, IL, 6-9 May 2007

This triennial conference will be held from 6-9 May 2007, the days leading
up to the Forty-Second International Medieval Congress at Western Michigan
University (10-13 May).

The site for the conference will once again be held at scenic Allerton
Park and Retreat Center in Monticello, Illinois. Prof. Barrie Dobson,
Cambridge University (retired), is our plenary speaker; his paper is
tentatively titled "The Rise of the Professions in Fifteenth-Century
England."  Prof. Pamela King, University of Bristol, is our keynote
speaker; her paper is tentatively titled "Confraternities, Civic Shows,
and the Rhetoric of Fifteenth-Century English Urban Culture."

The deadline for paper proposals is Friday, 3 November 2006. Papers should
be approximately 45 minutes long and can deal with any aspect of
fifteenth-century English history or culture. (The conference definition
of "fifteenth-century England" is rather broad, covering England and its
realm - both insular and continental - from c. 1350 to c. 1550.)
