To celebrate the life and scholarship of Nigel F. Palmer, Professor of German Medieval Literary and Linguistic Studies at the University of Oxford, the Faculty will honour his memory with a symposium, entitled 'Literary, religious and manuscript cultures of the German-speaking lands' to be held at the Taylorian and the Weston Library on 19-20 May 2023.

The symposium brings together colleagues from around the world. Their presentations speak to the wide spectrum of Nigel’s intellectual interests, which ranged extensively within the broad scope of the literary and religious history of the German- and Dutch-speaking lands, treating Latin alongside the vernaculars, the early printed book alongside the manuscript, and the court and the city alongside the monastery and the convent. On Saturday, there will be a reception at St Edmund Hall as well as a dinner.
