Chronicles are a fertile area of academic research focusing on a genre of historical literature written mainly in a time before departments of English and History had yet come into existence. The Cambridge International Chronicle Symposium (CICS) is a biennial interdisciplinary conference organized to promote research and to strengthen the network of chronicle studies worldwide. The aim of the CICS is to allow scholars from various departments of learning and critical approaches to meet, present new research, demonstrate new critical approaches and discuss prospects for ongoing, collective research between scholars and academic institutions.
The inaugural symposium took place on 11 - 13 July 2008 at the English Faculty Building, 9 West Road, Cambridge, and attracted over 60 delegates. Selected papers will be published in The Medieval Chronicle,vols VI and VII, by Rodopi in 2009 and 2010.
Forth-coming conference details and Call For Papers
The theme for CICS 2010 is Authority and Gender in Medieval and Renaissance Chronicles, which will be debated over the three days during open sessions of three twenty-five minute papers, alternating with longer keynote addresses. Selected papers will be published in a volume bearing the same title within two years of the conference. The 2008 inaugural proceedings appeared in the Medieval Chronicle, vols. VI (2009) and VII (2010, forthcoming).
The organisers welcome paper or article proposals on the following subjects:
            - Kingship and Queenship, Earls and Ealdormen;
            - Abbots and abbesses, monks and nuns;
            - Ecclesiastical and secular authorities;
