Wednesday's events


You are warmly invited you to join us for wine and nibbles at our customary pre-Dance gathering.

Wednesday's events


Building on discussions from previous IMCs and in the wake of the #MeToo movement, this session is an informal discussion where participants are invited to share their experiences and contribute to what we as academics can do to prevent sexual harassment in the academy. Although institutional policies exist, the vast amount of cases that have come to light in recent months demonstrate that further work is needed to protect staff and students from harassment. It is hoped that this session will be an open-ended discussion, allowing the safe sharing of initiatives and experiences, as well as positing solutions that staff can take back to their own institutions to implement. Live tweeting of the session will be in place to ensure all who wish to participate can do so.

Please note this is an informal discussion and a safe space for all participants: it is not intended to be a formal roundtable but an expression of ideas for the future. All academic staff, independent scholars and students welcome.

This discussion will be led by Gabrielle Storey (University of Winchester).

Wednesday's events


This year, Brepols Publishers and the Institute of Medieval Studies in Leeds are celebrating 50 years since the launch of the International Medieval Bibliography (IMB). To commemorate this event, a quiz was launched for all participants of the Leeds IMC 2018 with a chance to win a trip to Bruges, Belgium or one of many book vouchers. On Wednesday, 4 July at 13.00, the winners will be announced at the official prize ceremony hosted at the Brepols Booth at the IMC Book Fair.

Make sure to come by, because not only the winners can take something home. . .
