Bad Behaviour in Medieval and Early Modern Europe

Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies, University of Kent, Canterbury
Postgraduate Colloquium, Thursday, 3rd December, 2009
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Malcolm H. Jones
(University of Sheffield, author of The Secret Middle Ages)

This is an inter-disciplinary postgraduate colloquium which considers the

broad spectrum of bad behaviour: from mischief and misdemeanours to

transgression, criminality and violence. We invite proposals for papers

which will look beyond the received notion of good versus evil as

circumscribed by the Christian tradition. This will be an opportunity to

look at bad behaviour in all in its varied forms and situations. Rather than

consider how transgression was dealt with and controlled by society, the

colloquium will seek to make bad behaviour per se central to discussions.
Please send your 250 word abstract to bad-behaviour@kent.ac.uk by 30th

September, 2009. Papers will be 20 minutes with 10 minutes for questions. Organisers: Emma Rose Barber, Krista Bonello, Edina Eszenyi and Diane Heath. Please see the MEMS website for full details: http://www.kent.ac.uk/mems/
