CFP: 6th Annual Graduate Conference on Medieval Studies at CUA in DC--April 20, 2012

Dear Medievalist Friends,

I am pleased to send you the call for papers for our 6th Annual Graduate Conference on Medieval Studies (attached). This year's conference will be held on April 20, 2012. The theme is "Cross-Cultural Encounters in the Middle Ages," but presentations on other topics will also be considered. Abstracts of 250 words are due on March 1, 2012. Please email them to me at

I'm also delighted to announce our keynote speaker, Dr. Thérèse-Anne Druart of CUA's Philosophy Department, who will be speaking the evening before the conference, at 5:15 pm on April 19 in the Happel Room.

Presenters and attendees from past years will recall fondly the fascinating scholarship, encouraging atmosphere, and of course the famous medieval banquet (with Tastour's Pris for best dish!). It's a
great opportunity to share your research, and get a line on your CV, in a friendly environment. This is a graduate conference, but advanced undergraduates are also encouraged to submit abstracts.

Please share the attached CFP with anyone, especially those at other schools, who might be interested in presenting or attending.
