CFP: 52nd International Congress on Medieval Studies
May 11th-14th, 2017

Special Session: Hiberno-Latin Studies I
Organizers: Shannon Ambrose (Saint Xavier University) and Kristen Carella (Assumption College)

For this traditional, three-paper panel, we invite proposals for twenty-minute papers on any topic related to Hiberno-Latin literature and studies.  While topics that trace Hiberno-Latin influences on other traditions (for example, Anglo- and Carolingian Latin, or various Insular and Continental vernaculars) are welcome, preference will be given to those proposals that examine Hiberno-Latin literature for its own sake.  Papers that focus on poetry, biblical exegesis, law, encyclopedic notes and short comments, homiletics, etc., are encouraged as are those that deal with the definition of “Hiberno-Latin” and the so-called “symptoms” used to identify Latin texts of Irish production both within Ireland and in Irish monastic foundations abroad.  Finally, we are especially interested in papers that deal with matters related to edition-making and translating Hiberno-Latin texts.

Please send abstracts of no more than 250 words to session organizer Shannon Ambrose ( by September 15th.
