The Gender & Medieval Studies (GMS) Group is a UK-based organization devoted solely to putting together an annual interdisciplinary conference, which furthers the study of medieval gender. The conference is an annual peripatetic event that has been running since at least the late 1980s (oral history suggests that it was running in 1987 at the latest) and traditionally takes place in early January.
It is geared as much towards postgraduate students as established scholars. A steering committee exists to help ensure the continuation of the conference from year to year.
The next conference will take place in at Bath Spa University on the 4th - 6th of January 2013, with keynote speakers Prof. Catherine Karkov (University of Leeds) and Dr Simon Yarrow (University of Birmingham). The call for papers is now available on this site.
