In 2002, the Medieval Institute inaugurated a lecture series in honor of Robert M. and Ricki Conway. Robert Conway is a 1966 graduate of Notre Dame and trustee of the University, and he and his wife are long-time friends and supporters of the Medieval Institute. The annual Conway Lectures bring senior scholars of international distinction to Notre Dame each fall to speak on topics across a variety of disciplines. The lectures are then published by the University of Notre Dame Press.
This year's lectures will be on the topic of race in the Middle Ages with speakers Suzanne Conklin Akbari (Institute for Advanced Study), Sara Lipton (Stony Brook University), and Cord J. Whitaker (Wellesley), and will be held, for the first time, virtually.
This final portion of the event will be a roundtable with all three speakers and audience Q&A.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. This registration gives you access to all Conway lectures and the roundtable.
