CfP: The Medieval Church: From Margins to Centre (26-27 June, University of York)

The convenors of the Ideology, Society and Medieval Religion seminar series are organising a conference for next June, sponsored by the Centre for Medieval Studies and Department of History. The Medieval Church: From Margins to Centre, will take place online and at the University of York from 26-27 June 2023.
This conference aims to consider the relationship between the Church and the marginalised in medieval society – minority genders and sexualities, racial minorities, disabled people, non-Christians, and the poor. How did the Church respond to, oppress, or offer opportunities to those on the margins, and how did marginalised individuals and groups exercise agency through their interactions with the institutions and mechanisms of the Church? We are interested in both the ‘positive’ – for example, how the church supported the poor, holy models of disability and transgender experience – and the ‘negative’, such as the Church’s role in the creation and maintenance of social prejudices.
We welcome papers from researchers working across the medieval period (from c.400-1500) as well as different geographic regions (including papers on other denominations of Christianity, as well as the Church outside of Europe), and with disciplinary focuses including but not limited to History, Literary Studies, Art History and Archaeology. More information can be found on our website:…/
Please send abstracts of up to 250 words to Tim Wingard ( by no later than 5pm on Sunday 5 February 2023. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
