LAMPS aims to provide an engaging forum for cross-disciplinary discussion that focuses on the Late Antique and Medieval periods. We welcome proposals on the study of these time periods as well as topics pertaining to the reception and perception of the Late Antique and Medieval periods from later sources. Postgraduate students from all disciplines and at any stage of their research are welcome to submit papers.
For the Autumn 2016 semester, LAMPS requests that submissions explore the theme of Freedom.
Possible paper topics include, but are certainly not limited to:
- Aristocratic freedoms vs common freedoms
- Freedom (or restriction) of movement or speech
- Ideas of sovereignty
- How gender influenced one’s freedom
- Liminal spaces
- Modern conceptions of how freedom was understood in the medieval period
