This is a call for papers for the Thirty-First International Conference
of the Charles Homer Haskins Society, held at Boston College
(Massachusetts, USA), between 2–5 November, 2012. The conference, held
over three days, is comprised of twenty-five twenty-minutepapers (we
have no concurrent sessions, so all conference attendees can attend
allpapers) and three longer talks by featured speakers.  This year’s
keynote speakers will be historians Elisabeth van Houts (Emmanuel
College, Cambridge)and Marcus Bull (UNC, Chapel Hill), and
Osteoarchaeologist Angela Boyle (who will speak to us about her analysis
of the human remains uncovered in the recently discovered Weymouth mass

The Society welcomes paper proposals in the fields and periods of
medieval studies to which Charles Homer Haskins, himself, contributed.
   Although the conference is primarily a European history conference
concerned with the years between the fall of Rome and the early
thirteenth century, we encourage the submisstion of historically-minded
literature, art history and archaeology papers.

We welcome proposals both for complete sessions (of three themedpapers)
and for individualpapers.  Please send one-paragraph abstracts and c.v.s
to the Program Directors, Robin Fleming and Sally Shockro, at
<>. Proposals will be accepted
between May 1 and June 1, 2012.  We will finalize the 2011 program by
August 1.

By 1 August we will also have the 2012 Haskins Society Conference
website up, which will allow you to register forthe conference on-line
and to make hotel reservations.
