The 17th Vagantes Conference on Medieval Studies is currently seeking paper abstracts on any topic related to the Middle Ages. The conference will take place from March 22nd-24th, 2018 at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.

Vagantes is North America’s largest graduate-student conference for medieval studies. Since its founding in 2002, Vagantes has nurtured a lively community of junior scholars from across all disciplines. The 17th Vagantes Conference on Medieval Studies will feature thirty graduate-student papers and three distinguished keynote speakers. Out of consideration for graduate students' budgets, Vagantes never charges a registration fee. The organizers of Vagantes believe that a diverse and inclusive view of the medieval period is essential. As such, graduate students in all disciplines are invited to submit paper abstracts of no more than 300 words on any topic relating to the Middle Ages.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, November 3rd, 2017. More information about the conference can be found on the attached PDF. The online CFP is live and accessible here -
