The Annual Postgraduate Monasticism Conference aims to bring together researchers from many different institutions and disciplines to discuss monasticism in its broadest sense. This year the topic is Monastic Sciences and two keynote speakers have already been secured, Prof. Peregrine Horden (RHUL), and Dr. Sophie Page (UCL).
The event allows delegates to network and create links with other researchers from all over Europe, and to be exposed to views of monasticism different from their own. Based on numbers from last year, 30% of the delegates are international. Though the event is based at the University of Leeds, it is publicised throughout the country, and draws many delegates from the White Rose network.
