The International Society for the Study of Early Medieval England offers exciting opportunities for graduate students working in all areas of our field. Every two years the Society hosts a graduate workshop which takes place just before the ISSEME biennial conference and it annually sponsors ‘New Voices’ sessions by graduate students and young researchers at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University and at the International Medieval Congress at the University of Leeds. The Society is able to offer a number of travel awards to enable students to attend the graduate workshop. Students are also encouraged to apply for funding from the Lynne Grundy Memorial trust, with which the Society maintains close ties.
Prior to every biennial meeting, ISSEME organizes a workshop for graduate students. More information about how to apply for this workshop will follow in due course.
New Voices sessions
Annually, ISSEME sponsors ‘New Voices’ sessions by graduate students and young researchers at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University and at the International Medieval Congress at the University of Leeds.
Every year, ISSEME organize a mentoring programme, which is open to all our members (not just graduate students). You can sign on as a mentee, but also as a mentor for prospective or new graduate students.
Lynne Grundy Memorial trust
Lynne Grundy was well-known to members of ISSEME, not least for her unsurpassed work on the theology of her fellow Eynsham alumn, Ælfric. This Trust continues to honour her memory by offering several grants annually to students and faculty. For more information, please visit the Lynne Grundy Memorial Trust.
