News: Birmingham’s Steve Walker to present on ‘Problems of Identity in Early Medieval Britain’ at CCASNAC 2017

Steve Walker has been invited to present a paper at the CCASNC (Cambridge Colloquium for Norse, Anglo-Saxon and Celtic) Conference 2017.

The conference will be held at Wolfson College, Cambridge, on 11th February.

The theme is ‘Identity and Ideology’ and my paper is entitled ‘Who Do We Think They Were?  Problems of Identity in Early Medieval Britain‘.  Steve’s paper will examine at how modern nationalist ideologies inform and influence our reading of early medieval writers such as Bede and Gildas and risk distorting our view of fifth- and sixth-century British history.

Steve is a distance-learning PhD, so if you are a Birmingham PhD who’s also travelling to CCASNC do introduce yourselves!
