Each year we organise and host a major residential conference with internationally recognised speakers. The conference is usually held in early December, coinciding with the AGM and Annual Lecture.
SMA Annual Conference 2016
Waiting for the End of the World: Perceptions of Disaster and Risk in Medieval Europe
2-4 December 2016, Rewley House, Oxford
This conference will be organized around a number of sessions; some will explore the impacts and societal responses related to different categories of hazard, while others will focus on religious responses and perceptions of risk. It is the intention of the conference organizers to publish the proceedings as a monograph of the Society for Medieval Archaeology.
