We are delighted to remind you that 'Brut in New Troy 2020' - the first scholarly conference devoted to the Bruttradition as a whole - will take place from 26-29 June 2020 at the University of Notre Dame's London Global Gateway (1 Suffolk Street), next to Trafalgar Square. The conference builds on the triennial meetings of the International Lawman’s Brut Society and will feature a keynote address by Professor Jane Roberts, esteemed scholar of Lawman's Brut and Old and Middle English language and literature. While Lawman's Brut remains an important subject of inquiry, this event also seeks to bring many more Bruts under the spotlight. The conference aims to promote fruitful conversation among established academics, early career scholars, and graduate students working on all aspects of the long historiographic, literary, and artistic Bruttradition. In the heart of New Troy, we seek to provide a forum for comparative, multilingual, cross-period, and cross-disciplinary discussion of Brut-related texts and manuscripts, both canonical and less familiar, including early histories of Britain. We very much hope that you will be able to join us.

We warmly invite submissions for 20-minute papers on any aspect of the Brut tradition. Please see the attached 'call for papers' for details and submission guidelines, and kindly note the deadline for receipt of abstracts (15 October). Please feel free to share the call for papers with your colleagues and graduate students. For full information about the conference, please visit our website:

We hope you have a lovely day. We will look forward to welcoming you in London in June 2020!
