Registration is now open for Quadrivium VIII, which will be held at the HRI University of Sheffield, 1-2 November 2012 under the auspices of Manuscripts Online (https://manuscriptsonline.wordpress.com/about/).

For those of you who are new to the PhD, the Quadrivium programme offers lectures, seminars, and networking opportunities over a two-day period to postgraduate students who work on medieval textual cultures, and will be of value to research students at various stages of their doctoral careers.  The programme is a collaborative training event run by medievalists at Birmingham, Queen’s Belfast, Oxford, York, Leicester, Glasgow, Sheffield and St Andrews.

This year Quadrivium will focus on digital humanities and their value for postgraduate research, including an hands on workshop on the new project ‘Manuscripts online’. There will also be sessions on academic and non-academic careers, workshops on grant applications and other ‘generic skills’ sessions. A full programme will be posted on the symposium website soon.

Quadrivium VIII is generously subsidised by  JISC. Registration for Quadrivium is free, and lunches and the conference dinner will also be offered free of charge. We are also pleased to offer financial support to cover accommodation and travel expenses which will distributed on a first come, first serve basis (on production of receipts).
