The 36th International Conference of the Haskins Society

3-5 November 2017

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Registration will open in late August.
Further details are available via the menus above.

The annual conference of the Haskins Society brings together scholars from all disciplines working on the history of the early and central Middle Ages, with a particular emphasis on the Anglo-Saxon, Norman, and Anglo-Norman worlds.

The featured speakers in 2017 are:

William Purkis (University of Birmingham)

Sarah Hamilton (University of Exeter)

Constance Bouchard (University of Akron)

We also wish to highlight several opportunities for alternate forms of participation in the conference:
  • New Research Forum

On Friday morning, the conference hosts a New Research Forum to highlight and discuss new research or work in progress. Modelled on “flash sessions,” presenters will have five minutes to explain their projects as a prelude to in-depth small group discussions. Presenters will be listed in the program and should send a one paragraph abstract and c.v. to haskinsconference@gmail.com and include the word “Forum” in the address line.

  • Thursday Afternoon/Evening Mock Interviews (2 November)

To support graduate student members of the Haskins Society in their career development, the Haskins Conference will again offer the opportunity to have mock job interviews with senior scholars on Thursday afternoon and evening. Please contact Nicholas Paul to indicate interest in being interviewed.

Support for Graduate Students

In order to encourage and support rising scholars, graduate student members of the Society are eligible to receive support from the Thomas Keefe memorial fund to cover the costs of registration. In addition, thanks to generous support from our University hosts, a number of bursaries are available to defray travel expenses (more details on these funds are on the Call for Papers. For any further questions, please contact Nicholas Paul or Marcus Bull.

Bethell Prize

Papers by graduate students, untenured faculty, and independent scholars are eligible for the Denis Bethell Prize. For details, see the "Denis Bethell Prize" link in the right-hand column of this website.


The Haskins Conference will take place on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Accommodation information and links will be available in August
