We invite paper proposals for sections on medieval equestrianism, to take place during the International Medieval Congress at Leeds 2016. 



The complimentary sections will cover all aspects of medieval equestrianism, highlighting:

  • theoretical approaches to medieval equestrian studies; and
  • practical applications of medieval equestrian studies, whether as part of re-enactment, live demonstration or public engagement activities, as well as the application of equestrian practices to academic studies of the Middle Ages.

In addition, there will be a Making Leeds Medieval on Horseback session, to round up the findings of the previous sessions with thematic demonstrations.

As the special strand of the IMC Leeds 2016 is Food, Feast and Famine, we particularly encourage to submit proposals engaging with both horses and food: food for horses and horses as food, as well as other associations between horses and nourishment. However, proposals on all other aspects of medieval equestrian studies are equally welcome.

Submission guidelines

Please send us proposals of under 200 words for 15-20 minute papers

by 15 September, 2015.
