Meet the MEMS Fest Team

Wondering who read your abstract submission? Who’s creating the schedule?

Organizing the Festival is a collaborative effort and the committee changes yearly. This year’s team is made up of six students who are currently studying for degrees in the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies at Kent. Keep reading to learn more about the people making MEMS Fest happen!
