July updates - a CfP and an approaching deadline

MAM Meeting in Terre Haute (September 2013):

Approaching deadline for the MAM 2013 conference in Terre Haute (from Harriet Hudson):
"... just a friendly reminder that abstracts for the Terre Haute conference are due August 1. The theme is "a sense of place", but as usual, papers on all aspects of medieval studies are welcome."

From Ed Risden:

28th International Conference on Medievalism

International Society for the Study of Medievalism

St. Norbert College, De Pere, Wisconsin

October 17-19, 2013

Medievalism: Its Centers and Margins

In addition to the authors, texts, and considerations that normally form the core of studies in medievalism, what works occupy, haunt, or draw the boundaries of what we consider proper matter for this field? What currently lies outside that we should certainly include, and what perhaps lies near the center that doesn’t really fit at all? Within the texts we study, what ideas or approaches form the core, and what has lingered at the margins, or what do we need to bring from outside toward center stage for careful study and consideration? Why do the texts that form our core remain there? Participants should feel welcome to submit abstracts directed to the conference theme or on any other aspects of medievalism—the study of later ages’ use of the material of the Middle Ages—that they choose to explore.

Plenary Speaker: Nick Haydock, University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, “Medievalism and Anamorphosis: Perspectives on the Middle Ages”

Conference Location: St. Norbert College, De Pere, Wisconsin, is just four miles from Green Bay and ten minutes from Green Bay Austin Straubel Airport (with daily service to Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis, Cleveland, and Atlanta), about a two-hour drive north from Milwaukee and four from Chicago. Conference lodging will be at the Kress Inn, next to SNC (920-403-5100).

Publication Opportunity: Presenters may feel welcome to submit papers to The Year’s Work in Medievalism (edited by E. L. Risden). Longer articles (over 6000 words) should go to Studies in Medievalism, edited by Karl Fugelso.

Deadline for submissions: July 1, 2013
Per Ed Risden, the deadline is now ASAP! (as in within the next week or two if possible--July 15 to 22?)
