The German Historical Institutes in London and Washington, D.C., are pleased to announce the ninth Medieval History Seminar, to be held in Washington, D.C., from October 15 to 17, 2015. The seminar is designed to bring together Ph.D. candidates and recent Ph.D. recipients (2013-2014) in medieval history from American, British and German universities for three days of scholarly discussion and collaboration. They will have the opportunity to present their work to their peers as well as to dis­tinguished scholars from both sides of the Atlantic. Conveners for the 2015-seminar will be Paul Freedman (Yale), Ruth Mazo Karras (University of Minnesota), Stuart Airlie (University of Glasgow), Miri Rubin (Queen Mary University of London), Bernhard Jussen (Goethe Universität Frankfurt am Main) and Frank Rexroth (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen).

The Medieval History Seminar welcomes proposals from all areas of medieval history. Par­ticipation is not limited to historians working on German history or German-speak­ing regions of Europe. Nor is a particular epoch or methodological approach prefer­red. Applications from neighbouring disciplines are welcome if the projects have a distinct historical focus.

The seminar is bi-lingual, and papers and discussions will be conducted both in German and English. Participants must have a good reading and aural comprehension of both languages. Successful applicants must be prepared to submit a paper of approximately 5000 words by September 1, 2015. They also are expected to act as commentator for other papers presented in the seminar.
