Lead Academic of White Rose Project

Dr Maroula Perisanidi, Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the University of Leeds, is the Lead Academic for the White Rose project 'Marginalisation and the Law: Medieval and Modern'.

The White Rose University Consortium, a strategic partnership between three of the UK's leading research universities (Leeds, Sheffield, and York), supports this project, led by Dr Maroula Perisanidi. Dr Melanie Brunner is also associated with this project, in addition to faculty from Sheffield and York. 'Marginalisation and the Law: Medieval and Modern' brings together four historians with expertise on medieval law and two scholars of contemporary socio-legal theory in order to examine the key elements that have underpinned the processes of marginalisation in the medieval and early modern periods. More information about the project can be found here. 

Two upcoming lectures, part of the Marginalisation and the Law Public Lecture Series, will be held at the University of Sheffield; a number of bursaries are available for postgraduate students (MA and PhD) to cover travel costs to Sheffield for one or both lectures. For more information about the upcoming lectures, bursaries, and future events, contact Dr Maroula Perisanidi. Lecture details can be viewed on the 2018 Calendar (15 and 16 February).
