MARCH 5, 6, AND 7,

Florida State University is proud to host Vagantes 2009!

Vagantes, an annual, traveling conference for graduate students studying any
aspect of the Middle Ages, was conceived with several goals in mind:
fostering a sense of community among junior medievalists, providing exposure
to an interdisciplinary forum, and showcasing the resources of the host
institutions -- all within a student budget.

This year's conference features 24 graduate student presenters from various
institutions across North America. Additionally, Vagantes is honored to
welcome keynote speakers Richard Emmerson (Florida State University) and
Helen Damico (University of New Mexico). During the evening of March 6, Dr.
Emmerson will present "John as Visionary Witness, Participant, and
Intermediary in Medieval Apocalypses". On March 7, Dr. Damico will present
"Beowulf and the Danes: From History to Vernacular Epic". Receptions will
follow each keynote presentation.

For further information regarding the conference program, registration,
receptions and banquet, and travel logistics, please visit the conference

Registration for the conference is *FREE* for each and every attendee.
Everyone is more than welcome to attend some or all of the conference.
Vagantes, FSU, and the Conference Committee look forward to seeing you in

Best wishes,
Carey Fee
