Registration for the MANCEPT Workshops 2017 is now open!

We are delighted to announce that we have 28 panels at the workshops this year. Please find details of the subject of each panel on the relevant pages: Panels A-E – Panels F-P – Panels Q-Z

Registration for the workshops is now open and can be completed here. The cost of registration is £230 for academics and £135 for graduate students or retirees. Registration will be open until the 7th of July 2017 (after this time a late fee will be incurred).

On the 11th of September, we will be hosting a conference dinner at the Midland Hotel in central Manchester. Tickets for this are limited and can be purchased through the registration page. The cost of dinner tickets is £30 for academics and £20 for graduate students and retirees.

Unfortunately, we are not able to offer accommodation this year – however, we’ve provided a list of conveniently located hotels and hostels for your consideration here.

We have a number of bursaries available to cover the costs of registration (not including the conference dinner on Monday 11 September). Anyone who is not currently in full-time employment may apply. The deadline to apply for a bursary is the 16th of June and decisions will be made by the 23rd. To apply for a bursary, please include the following information in a word document and email it to us at: – Name, Institutional Affiliation, Paper Title, Panel Title, and Reason for Application.

If you wish to attend without giving a paper, please note that while participants in the MANCEPT workshops need not be paper givers, all delegates must be attached to a particular workshop and their attendance agreed by with the workshop convenor.

Upcoming FilmCEPT!

8 October we will be watching:



“In a gritty and alternate 1985 the glory days of costumed vigilantes have been brought to a close by a government crackdown, but after one of the masked veterans is brutally murdered an investigation into the killer is initiated. The reunited heroes set out to prevent their own destruction, but in doing so discover a deeper and far more diabolical plot…”


Based on the famous graphic novel by Alan Moore, this film is sure to inspire some interesting discussion, so come along the 8th of October (19:00, room 4.059–but both time and place are subject to last minute changes)
