I suppose most folks are by now aware that the program to this year’s International Medieval Congress at Kalamazoo, Michigan, is now available from the Congress web page. This will be my last ‘Zoo as a grad student, and I hope to make the most of it. At the rate I’m going now, I’ll be in that stage where I’m between turning in the diss and defending it, so I’ll literally have “nothing to do” (yeah right, reality check…). With that in mind, here’s a run down of what caught my eye in this year’s schedule, and a fair blue print of sessions to which I’ll be going (the ones in italics being my main priority). Can’t wait for May…As Chaucer and Malory can tell you, May is when all the fun starts.
Thursday at 10:00
Session 32 (mine). Yup, I’m among those lucky ones ‘opening’ the conference. Yipee. My paper is “Crusade and Imperium in Staufer Germany, 1170-1200.” Thanks, David, for letting me participate!
