Brut in New Troy 2020, a conference devoted to discussions of the Brut tradition in all of its variety and the first scholarly conference about the Brut tradition as a whole, will take place at the University of Notre Dame’s London Centre in Trafalgar Square from 26 to 29 June 2020. 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. The event will feature a keynote address by Professor Jane Roberts. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 15 October 2019.
