The White Rose University Consortium, a strategic partnership between three of the UK's leading research universities (Leeds, Sheffield, and York), supports the project 'Marginalisation and the Law: Medieval and Modern'. Dr Maroula Perisanidi, Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the University of Leeds, is the Lead Academic for the project, and Dr Melanie Brunner, Lecturer in Medieval Studies at the University of Leeds and Project Editor of the IMB, is also associated with the project, in addition to faculty from Sheffield and York.
'Marginalisation and the Law' brings together four historians with expertise on medieval law and two scholars of contemporary socio-legal theory in order to examine the key elements that have underpinned the processes of marginalisation in the medieval and early modern periods. A lecture series is a major aspect of this project.
The lecture, 'Merchants and Bankers in Byzantium', presented by Dr Peter Sarris, Reader in Late Roman, Medieval, and Byzantine History, and Fellow of Trinity College at the University of Cambridge, will be held at the University of Leeds.
Bursaries are available for postgraduate students (MA and PhD) to cover travel costs. For more information about the project, lectures (held at Leeds, Sheffield, or York), or bursaries, contact Dr Maroula Perisanidi (M.Perisanidi@leeds.ac.uk).
