  26-29 June 2020 Conference: Brut in New Troy 2020 - Fischer Hall, QMUL Mile End

This four-day conference aims to promote fruitful conversation among scholars working on all aspects of the long historiographic, literary, and artistic Brut tradition. It is the first scholarly conference about the Brut tradition as a whole. In the heart of New Troy, we seek to provide a forum for comparative, multilingual, cross-period, and cross-disciplinary discussion of Brut-related texts and manuscripts, both canonical and less familiar, and by no means limited to 'legendary' material.
