“Medieval Borders and Frontiers”
The Thirty-third Annual Conference of the Medieval Association of the Midwest
October 19–21, 2017
The University of Kansas, Lawrence
The Medieval Association of the Midwest invites papers and complete sessions on any aspect of the 2017 conference theme: “Medieval Borders and Frontiers.”
The organizers view frontiers and borders as starting points for the exploration of the cultural fluidity in the medieval world. We encourage submission of papers from a range of disciplines: archeology; art history; history, literature, music; material artifacts; religion, politics, and law. Especially welcomed are topics discussing phenomena such as migration in the Middle Ages, multilingualism, and the volatility of cultures. Organizers will also welcome paper and session proposals on any topic related to medieval and early modern history, literature, language, and culture.
Please send an abstract of no more than 300 words (media requests included) and a one-page CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 15, 2017.
