Every year Medieval English Theatre runs a conference meeting around the last Saturday in March, each time at a different venue and on a different topic in the study of early theatre.

The format varies, but usually consists of brief papers followed by informal discussion. Practical workshops and performances are often included. Papers delivered at the meeting may be invited for consideration for publication in the journal. Members of the Society are automatically on the mailing list for the meetings, and have a preferential attendance rate. We welcome postgraduate students and also non-members.

The 2023 Medieval English Theatre Meeting will take place at the
University of Birmingham on Saturday 1 April,
hosted by Liv Robinson.

The topic is Bodies, Embodiment, and Early Theatre.

After three years, the meeting is once more in person, but we hope to arrange at least one Zoom session for remote contributions.

REGISTRATION is now open. Go to 2023 Meeting for details and links.


An archive of past meetings and their themes, with programmes from 2002 onwards, can be found via the drop-down menu above.
