Southern African Society for Medieval and Renaissance Studies Conference

23 – 26th August 2018


We are pleased to announce that the 24th biennial conference of SASMARS will be held at Mont Fleur in Stellenbosch, South Africa from Thursday the 23rd to Sunday the 26th of August 2018.

“Ancestry and Memory in Medieval and Early Modern Worlds”

Keynote Speaker:  Professor Alexandra Walsham, University of Cambridge


            Medieval and early modern societies weathered various socio-cultural changes, including religious, economic, and political transformations, across a range of different geographies and in both urban and rural spaces.  We seek papers from any applicable discipline that explore ancestry and memory within a variety of geographic locales in the medieval and/or early modern eras. We shall welcome broad and imaginative interpretations of “ancestry” and “memory”.

            Deadline:  Please send a conference proposal and a short biography to Retha Knoetze: by 18 February 2018.  Any inquiries can be directed to the same email address.
