Venue: Taylor Institution and Weston Library
Admission: Free for symposium and reception; dinner to be charged. Please register to attend by 30 April 2023.
To celebrate the life and scholarship of Nigel F. Palmer, Professor of German Medieval Literary and Linguistic Studies at the University of Oxford, Faculty, College and academic community will honour his memory with a symposium, to be held at the Taylorian and the Weston Library on 19-20 May 2023.
The symposium brings together colleagues from around the world. Their presentations speak to the wide spectrum of Nigel’s intellectual interests, which ranged extensively within the broad scope of the literary and religious history of the German- and Dutch-speaking lands, treating Latin alongside the vernaculars, the early printed book alongside the manuscript, and the court and the city alongside the monastery and the convent. On Saturday, there will be a reception at St Edmund Hall as well as a dinner.
The event is supported by the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages, the Meister-Eckhart-Gesellschaft, SSMLL, and St Edmund Hall. Here a link to the call of papers, below the draft programme.
