The Medieval Chronicle

At the General Meeting in Doorn last year (2002) it was decided to turn the proceedings volume into a yearbook. Although it is at this moment not feasible to produce a volume annually, the frequency of appearance will go up to at least two volumes in three years. Our publisher, Rodopi, have therefore formally enlisted The Medieval Chronicle as a journal, with an appropriate ISBN.

The Medieval Chronicle, vol. III

Preparations have begun to get the new volume into shape for the publisher; it is expected that volume III will be out early next year. This volume will include the text of the plenary lecture of the 2002 conference by Gillette Labory and 15 or 16 conference papers.

Call for Papers for The Medieval Chronicle, vol. IV

While work on vol. III is going on, the editor of course has to think ahead and make plans for vol. IV. The other plenary lecture of the conference, that by Peter Ainsworth, will open this volume, which will also contain a few more of the conference papers, e.g. those of Letty ten Harkel and John Ward. However, at the conference we also agreed that the contents of the yearbook should not be restricted to conference papers. Hence you hereby receive a call for papers for vol. IV. The deadline is 15 March 2004. As always, all papers submitted will be peer reviewed by a board of editors/readers.

The Medieval Chronicle, vol. I

As announced before, Rodopi Publishers are planning to reprint our first proceedings volume, The Medieval Chronicle, vol. I, which did so well that it was completely sold out within two years. We will keep you up-to-date on this.

The 4th International Conference on the Medieval Chronicle

The organising committee at Reading University have begun preparations for the conference to be held at their university in 2005. The dates are Friday July 15 to Tuesday July 19. Papers on all aspects of medieval chronicles will be welcome. Enquiries should be sent to Professor Peter Noble at: lfsnoble{at}
