About Us

Since its founding in 2002, the Vagantes Conference on Medieval Studies has nurtured a lively and interdisciplinary community of junior scholars. Every conference features thirty papers on varied topics, allowing for exciting dialogue and the creation of new professional relationships between future colleagues. Vagantes travels to a new university every year, highlighting the unique resources of the host institution through keynote lectures, exhibitions, and special events. Out of consideration for graduate students’ limited budgets, Vagantes never charges a registration fee.
