Imagining Medieval English

Picture unrelated to the Notre Dame conference - just here for fun ...
But remember, don't mess around with Saint Theresa of Avila, especially if you are a "wild thing."

Conference Announcement--submitted by Tim Machan at the University of Notre Dame:

The University of Notre Dame will host "Imagining Medieval English" on September 15, 16, and 17. The conference, which is open to the public, will bring together 12 distinguished scholars who will speak on topics such as the reasons for positing coherence in the linguistic record of 500-1500; the kinds of coherence and difference that can be identified among medieval English regional dialects; the role of historical grammars and dictionaries in the construction of medieval English; the nature of historical linguistic evidence; and the relations between literary language and linguistic history. For additional information contact Tim Machan (tmachan@nd.edu) or see http://medieval.nd.edu/events/2014/09/15/23889-imagining-medieval-english/
