The European Middle Ages and the Classical Tradition

CALL FOR PAPERS: "The European Middle Ages and the Classical Tradition", a session sponsored by the Digby 23/Timaeus Project (timaeus.baylor.edu) at the 44th International Congress on Medieval Studies, 7-10 May 2009 at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Papers in any discipline or field are welcome, provided they discuss medieval reception of the Greek and Roman classical authors - how the classical authors are viewed, adaptations and translations of their work, encounters with native traditions of learning and storytelling, influence of the classics on medieval education, philosophy, historiography, art, etc. The potential range of topics is deliberately broad, in the hope of attracting a wide audience.

Contact Matthieu Boyd (Harvard University), mboyd@fas.harvard.edu, if possible before Sept. 15. Interested speakers should submit an abstract, and follow with a Participant Information Form (available at
