With regards to my co-organisers, I am joined for ‘MM&M3’ by two brilliant PhD researchers based in the Department of History/Graduate Centre for Medieval Studies (GCMS) here at the University of Reading. Claire Collins is currently in the process of finishing her thesis on Middle English midwifery tracts, and Anne Jeavons is part way through her doctoral research into matters of the mind and (what we might today term) ‘mental health’.

If you would like to submit an abstract and/or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us via the conference email address (see above). We will be sending out further information in early-mid January 2022 regarding finalised conference programme, conference attendance etc.
