MAMO aims to explore the continued return to, and relevance of, the Middle Ages in the modern world, and why the period continues to attract audiences and scholars. In particular, its interdisciplinary focus is designed to explore a range of areas, from popular culture to public history, from science to advertising, and even legal frameworks and political rhetoric. MAMO was inaugurated in 2013 at the University of St Andrews. The second MAMO conference took place in July 2015 at the University of Lincoln, in conjunction with celebrations of the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, when Lincoln’s own copy of the Magna Carta was returned and on display in the castle. The 2017 conference was organised by David Matthews and James at the University of Manchester.
The fourth MAMO conference will take place in Rome late in 2018. Watch this space!
