The deadline for paper proposals to the Kalamazoo congress is TOMORROW!!  So, here’s the last round of CFPs that have been piling up in my inbox, just in case you should read and feel inspired to throw together a paper topic in the 36 hours. Happy conferencing.


CFP Kalamazoo 2012: Reading Legal Sources

Please forward to all interested parties.

There is still space available for the following session:

Call for Papers: “Reading Legal Sources”

47th International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, MI, May 10-13, 2012

Reading Legal Sources will provide an opportunity for medievalists working on any of the wide variety of medieval legal sources to come together to discuss their research. Although  medieval legal documents may originate in different times and places, there are enough similarities among these sources that scholars working with them often find it useful to discuss their work with colleagues whose work also utilizes legal material. They may often utilize similar strategies, encounter similar difficulties, or arrive at similar conclusions, and this session will provide them with a way to share these experiences and explore the similarities and differences between a diversity of legal sources.

Send abstracts of approximately 300 words along with the Congress Participant Information Form no later than September 15

Good morning everyone! It’s that time of year again–prep for the Medieval Congress at Kalamazoo, which is scheduled for next year May 10-13, 2012.

I’ll begin with a plug for a session I’m involved with–the Crusades Studies Forum, “Germany and the Crusading Movement.”  If interested, contact: Vincent Ryan, St. Louis Univ., Dept. of History, 3800 Lindell Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63108-3414.  Phone 314-977-2910, email    Medieval Germany desperately needs exposure in the U.S., so we’re hoping to get a good session together.

Moving on to other CFPs, in no particular order, that I’ve received from the listserv:
