Organized by Professors Matthew Fisher (English, UCLA) and Arvind Thomas (English, UCLA), this two-day symposium features scholars working on the often fractious conflicts of the medieval past. Medievalists will consider both historic and also generic conflicts of interest in medieval England and on the Continent. The symposium will bring together a diverse community of scholars from around the world, and also include the work of graduate and undergraduate scholars. Collectively, we will explore how medieval conflicts of interest might be mutually generative and illuminating across genres, languages, and cultures.
