About North East Medieval and Early Modern Symposium
Supported by the Medieval and Early Modern Research Group at Newcastle University ( NEMS exists to build a strong community of Postgraduate Researchers in our field across the North East Universities. We are an informal and welcoming group, offering opportunities to share your research, participate in interdisciplinary discussions, and collaborate on the organisation of events and conferences, and on publication projects. Initially, we will meet twice yearly to hear research papers and socialise with colleagues. NEMS is entirely free to attend, and each meeting is followed by a drinks reception.
