DMLBS conference registration now open

DMLBS logoOn April 4th 1913, Robert J. Whitwell proposed to the Historical Congress in London that a new dictionary of Medieval Latin should be produced, to replace that of Du Cange.

Now, exactly one hundred years later, the DMLBS – one of the many projects arising out of the results of that initial proposal – is pleased to announce that registration opens today for its conference celebrating this centenary.

The conference ‘Latin in Medieval Britain: sources, language, and lexicography’, to be held in Oxford on 12th to 14th December 2013, will see a distinguished group of scholars speaking on topics relating to Latin in Britain in the middle ages in its cultural, historical, intellectual and linguistic contexts.

This event will be of broad appeal not only to historians, literary scholars and linguists working on medieval Britain and its people and texts, but also more widely to archivists, librarians, lexicographers (!), and in fact anyone with an interest in the medieval world.

To find out more about the conference and how to book your place, please go to the conference website.

We are also pleased to announce that we are able to offer to waive the conference fee for a (limited) number of early career academics and further details about this are available on the website.

The DMLBS gratefully acknowledges the support of the John Fell OUP Research Fund for this event.
