Since 1945 the London Medieval Society (LMS) has been committed to providing an invigorating forum for students and scholars from any discipline to present their own work and to share their ideas with fellow medievalists.

Members of the Society gain free entry to the three colloquia that the LMS runs each year at Queen Mary, London (details of upcoming events can be found here). The colloquia involve speakers from this country and beyond responding to a single theme which is chosen at the Society’s AGM. The speakers at these colloquia often come from very different disciplines and each produce unique responses to the themes under discussion.

As well as organising these three colloquia, the Society has also helped to organise sessions at the Leeds International Conference of Medievalists. The LMS organisers are always interested to hear from people with offers of papers or suggestions about themes for our upcoming colloquia.
