Forthcoming Research Symposia

IMRS Ordered Universe WorkshopOur collaborative symposia are the lifeblood of the project. What follows is a record of the main collaborative symposia we have held, from the birth of the project to read scientific works of the High Middle Ages in an interdisciplinary forum, to the most recent sessions which start the detailed process of working through the rest of Grosseteste’s scientific corpus. The process of team-building is a long one, and involves forging bonds of trust, personally and intellectually, between team members, and across disciplines. Each workshop advances the project, sharpens translations and interpretative questions, introduces new issues and new participants. Symposia are democratic and open to all, current and retired staff, post-docs, PhD and MA students and undergraduates.

Forthcoming Symposia:

13th – 17th May, 2019

Bishop Grosseteste University, UK

Lincoln Cathedral
Lincoln Cathedral

This symposium will be the first time that the project has visited the aptly-named Bishop Grosseteste University here in the UK. The symposium will include readings of the treatises De lineis (On Lines) and De natura locorum (On the Nature of Places) which are both part of Grosseteste’s exploration of spatial relationships. We are honoured to be hosted at Bishop Grosseteste University by Dr Jack Cunningham, and look forward very much to sharing knowledge and experience together.
