MEMO home picThe Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Research (MEMO) will hold its 10th Annual Symposium by the Sea from 23 to 24 June 2016.  The topic this year will be ‘Art for the Historian’.

The symposium will bring together the expertise of Swansea University’s Department of History and Classics in pre-modern visual sources, ranging from ancient Rome to the 17th-century Netherlands.  It will explore a range of evidence available to the historian, from the religious to the secular, from the ceremonial to the permanent, and from ‘high art’ to craft forms.

The venue will be Sketty Hall, a Georgian Mansion set within its own grounds, close to Swansea University.
