CFP. The Fifteenth Century Conference 2017 - deadline 28 April 2017

The Fifteenth Century Conference, which has met in most years since 1970, will bring together established as well as younger scholars of all aspects of fifteenth-century studies. We invite proposals for papers showcasing all aspects of current research into the fifteenth century and new trends in the field, relating to both England and the wider world, and of all disciplinary backgrounds.

In honour of Margaret Aston (1932-2014), we propose to include a stream of sessions focusing upon the religious history of the long fifteenth century. We particularly invite papers on subjects such as heresy and non-conformity, martyrdom, and iconoclasm, as well as pre-Reformation and Reformation religion in a broader sense.

Contributions from current research students are especially welcome. Papers should normally be of 20 minutes; additional time will be allowed for discussion. Subject to peer review, papers may be published in Boydell & Brewer’s series The Fifteenth Century.

To propose a paper please submit a title and short abstract (no more than 300 words) by email no later than Friday 28th April 2017. Contact:Dr Justin Colson ( and Dr Tom Freeman (
