The Medieval Academy of America is inaugurating a new travel program this fall, similar to those that universities often run for their communities of lifelong learners. Participants in this October 23-28 trip will join Executive Director Lisa Fagin Davis in England to visit two once-in-a-lifetime exhibitions: “Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms” at the British Library and “Tolkien: Maker of Middle Earth” at Oxford’s Bodleian Library, with curatorial introductions and expert guides. These exhibitions overlap for only one week, making this trip a unique opportunity for visitors to see them together.
For more information, please see the brochure here.
Proceeds benefit Medieval Academy of America programs in support of student, adjunct, unaffiliated, and junior scholars.
Please feel free to forward this link to anyone you know who might be interested, whether or not they are academics. Travelers do not need to be Medieval Academy members to participate. The trip is limited to twenty travelers, so interested participants should register as soon as possible and no later than August 23!
