      Please see the CfP for a new virtual conference this Spring:

      New Perspective in Castle StudiesSpring 2021 Call For Papers Of the surviving examples of medieval monumental architecture, castles remain among the most iconic. However the structures are defined – architecturally, geographically, or sociologically – much scholarship has examined the place of the castle in the literal and figurative medieval landscape. The field continues to build on this long scholarly tradition with innovative approaches and new perspectives. The Department of History at Saint Louis University invites proposals for “New Perspectives in Castle Studies,” a virtual conference. Possible topics might include (but are not limited to):

      -New techniques and strategies of studying castles.

      -Digital analysis of castles.

      -Questions of power and identity in relation to castles.

      -Examination and revision of established castle scholarship.

      Conference keynote lectures include a joint lecture by Prof. Oliver Creighton (Exeter) and Prof. Robert Liddiard (East Anglia) on Interdisciplinary to Integration in Castle Studies.The conference will take place April 6-9, 2021, and abstracts for papers (250 word limit) are due March 1, 2021. Conference Organizers welcome submissions of individual paper titles as well as sessions of up to three papers on a related topic. Accepted papers may then be peer reviewed to be included in conference proceedings. Paper proposals may be submitted via the form at
