The ‘sneak peek’ schedule of this year’s International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo is available here.
My session is slotted for 7:30 pm on Thursday. This will be my first evening session but at least my talk will be early in the Congress. So now I better get busy with working on my presentation. Since the schedule is out, I guess I can post the details of the session.
