Kalamazoo Prep begins

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.

  1. will the text of these papers be available online after the conference? Of course, if they are going to be published in hard copy, that would be fine too. In either event, I would be particularly interested in seeing the paper on plague as discussed by Bede

    1. I don’t know if there are publication plans. AVISTA does have a journal. I imagine I will blog about my talk on the Life of Cuthbert before and after Kzoo.

  2. I would also be very interested in your talk specifically. I am an archivist at St Peter’s, Monkwearmouth, England and so Bede is very close to my heart.
