Last Call for MAM 2013 in Cincinnati

Message from Stephen Yandell, Xavier University:

Hello MAM members!  

I'm looking forward to seeing you in Cincinnati this September 27-29 at Xavier University for our 28th annual conference.  We'll enjoy medieval music at our Fri. night reception in the atrium of the Cincinnati Art Museum, as well as a banquet lunch Sat. afternoon in Xavier's conference center.  Our plenary speaker, Dr. Robert Fulk (author of A History of Old English Meter and editor of The Beowulf Manuscript: Complete Texts and The Fight at Finnsburg) will be presenting on "Digital Philology," and our conference papers will cover a wide range of early and late medieval texts, as well as recent medievalism.

St. Peter in Chains (Rome, Italy).
I would love to have a few additional papers included in the schedule and very much welcome titles/abstracts being sent to me by Aug. 15.  A few folks have returned from summer travels wondering whether there is still a place for them in the conference—and there is.

Registration is $90.00 ($50.00 for graduate students and emeritus faculty); checks should be made to "Xavier University" and should be sent to me by early September at
