Spaces are limited, so if you would like to attend, please register by emailing medievalbarthes@gmail.com, remembering to include any access or dietary requirements you may have. We have a few postgraduate bursaries available to support travel, so if you are a postgraduate in need of travel funding please do email us to the same address with a short statement (300 words) about your own research and the relevance of this conference to your work, and we will be pleased to consider your request. Applicants for a postgraduate travel bursary must contact us by 26 February 2019, with the outcome to be announced shortly thereafter. Registration for all participants will close on 12 March 2019 in order that we can finalise numbers for catering etc. We are grateful for the generous support of the MHRA, the Society for French Studies, and the IAS. Please note that the final formal part of the day is an open forum on a specific text by Barthes, the lecture series Comment vivre ensemble (How to live together). On registration, two short extracts of this text will be provided in French and English to be read in advance of the conference.
