This is the latest in the established series of conferences on England and its neighbours during the long fifteenth century, papers from which have been published since the 1980s, and are now published as The Fifteenth Century by Boydell and Brewer. The Fifteenth Century III: Authority and Subversion, edited by Linda Clark will appear in July 2003.
This year's conference coincides with celebrations in the region of the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Shrewsbury, and includes a guided tour of the battlefield and the surviving memorial college, as well as papers on the wider context. The ambition of the conference is, however, as always to stimulate discussion of recent research on fifteenth-century history, and there are further papers on a wide range of political, literary and cultural themes.
