Tuesday: King on Confraternities and Urban Culture (Exeter Medieval Seminar)


Tuesday, 28 October, 4pm (Queen’s Building, MR1)

Professor Pamela King (University of Bristol) will present the following paper:

‘Confraternities, Civic Shows, and the Rhetoric of Medieval Urban Culture: the case of Siena’s Palio’

Professor King is Director of the Centre for Medieval Studies of the University of Bristol. She is an interdisciplinary medievalist who works chiefly on late medieval and early Tudor theatre and drama, but also on manuscript studies, iconography, and cultural history as well as ‘canonical’ Middle English literature. She is also interested in the performance of pageantry, spectacle, processions and civic shows from the Middle Ages to the present, and these interests will be reflected in the paper she will deliver on Tuesday.

The paper will be followed by a drinks reception, to which you are cordially invited.

The Semester 1 programme for the Medieval Seminar Series is now available here.
