Keynote Speakers

We are pleased to announce our keynote speakers for third annual Monasticism Conference at the University of Leeds. 

Dr Hugh Willmott from the University of Sheffield. His current research is on the archaeology of the Dissolution of the Monasteries in England, although other aspects of his work examine the development of historical societies through their production, consumption and deposition of material culture.

Dr. Marie-Luise Ehrenschwendtner from the University of Aberdeen. Her research interests include various areas of female spirituality in the Middle Ages and the early English Reformation, especially the influence of Lutheran theology on the first English Reformers. She currently researches the interaction between literacy, perceptions of monastic space and religious practices.
