Graduate Conference in Medieval Studies at Princeton

Coming Together: Taverns, Leisure, and Public
Gathering in the Middle Ages

5 April 2008

Call for Papers

The Program in Medieval Studies at Princeton
University invites graduate students to submit paper
proposals for its annual graduate conference: "Coming
Together: Taverns, Leisure and Public Gathering in the
Middle Ages." We are pleased to announce this year's
keynote speaker, Margot Fassler, Robert Tangeman
Professor of Music History and Liturgy at Yale

Opening with an address by Professor Fassler on the
Gamblers' Mass and liturgical parody in the Carmina
Burana collection, the conference invites students to
re-think the concepts of work and play and to study
the different ways in which public gatherings were
woven into the social fabric of the Middle Ages. In
keeping with the Program's aim to promote
interdisciplinary exchange among medievalists, we
encourage proposals from a variety of chronologies,
geographies, and disciplines. Topics could include,
but are of course not limited to:

•taverns and inns
•harvest boons
•social and performative aspects of folklore or
courtly poetry
•compositional play in literary, musical, or visual
•liturgical drama
•holy days
•eating and feasting
•games and sports
•rustic mirth

In order to encourage participation of speakers from
outside the northeastern United States, we are
offering a limited number of modest subsidies to help
offset the cost of travel to Princeton. Please note
that financial assistance is not available for every
participant; a committee will assign subsidies to
students who have the farthest distance to travel.
Every speaker will have the option of staying with a
resident graduate student as an alternative to paying
for a hotel room.

Papers should take no more than twenty minutes to
deliver. Please submit a 250-word abstract of your
project by 7 January 2008 to Jamie Kreiner
( or Chris Kurpiewski

New Book

A Viking Slave’s Saga (Jan Fridegård's Trilogy of Novels about the Viking Age)

Translated by Robert E. Bjork

Winner of the 1987 Translation Prize of the American-Scandinavian Foundation

This trilogy centers on a 9th-century thrall named Holme, his wife, Ausi, and their daughter, Tora, and chronicles Holme's struggle against his Viking enemies, initially as a relatively helpless blacksmith slave who witnesses his chieftain order Holme's newborn baby put out in the forest to die. It also relates the beginning of the clash, which becomes more and more violent as the trilogy proceeds, between paganism and Christianity in Sweden. A missionary enters Holme’s world in the first novel, tries but gradually fails to convert the recalcitrant Swedes, and is finally offered as a bloody sacrifice to Odinn, Thor, and Freyr. Other Christian missionaries, modelled on Ansgar, the archbishop of Hamburg, and his companion, Witmar, who conducted the first recorded mission to Sweden in c. 830 AD, arrive in the second novel, which likewise pits Holme and the slaves he represents against the freemen and Christians. The last novel finishes the story of the increasingly oppressive and ruthless incursion of Christianity into the North and ends in predicable tragedy for the protagonist.

Reprint in one volume of:
Land of Wooden Gods (Trägudars land, 1940),
People of the Dawn (Gryningsfolket, 1944), and

Call for Papers: 'Manuscripts and Miscellaneity, c. 1450-1720'

University of Cambridge, UK, 3-4 July 2008

An international conference organized by Scriptorium: Medieval and
Early Modern Manuscripts Online.

Speakers to include: Barbara Benedict, Julia Boffey, Victoria Burke,
Margaret Connolly, Alexandra Gillespie, Earle Havens, Arthur Marotti,
Steven May, Marcy North, Fred Schurink, John Thompson

Commonplace books, collections, miscellanies; collections of lyric
verse, extracts from authors, sacred and profane, topographical,
heraldic and legal information, estate and household accounts and
recipes. How do we describe or classify manuscripts with such
miscellaneous contents? What importance did such objects, frequently
used for several different purposes over the course of their lives,
have in the manuscript culture of the late medieval and early modern
periods? And in what ways can recent critical interests in the
material history of the book and of the history of reading practices
help us to understand them?

In addressing these questions, this conference will bring together
literary scholars and cultural historians, codicologists and
historians of the book. It will foster discussion of manuscript
miscellanies written or compiled between the mid-fifteenth and
early-eighteenth centuries: their contents, their material forms, how
they were written and read, the ways in which their contents were
arranged and disposed (within single books or across sequences of
books), who owned them and how they used them, and the places that
they might have had in the schoolroom or university, home or library.

It will also question the very concept of miscellaneity, in relation
to other kinds of compilation and collection, and to other methods of
book-classification - is miscellaneity a helpful critical,
methodological or bibliographical term? And how do we view the
miscellany differently in this age of digital facsimiles and

We have limited space for further papers at the conference, and would
like to invite proposals in the following or related areas, though by
no means restricted to them:

•Concepts of miscellaneity (as collection, variety, multiplicity)

•The categorizing / classification of miscellaneous manuscripts (within
libraries or criticism)

•Manuscript and printed miscellanies and their relation

•Commonplace books

•Poetic miscellanies

•Household miscellanies (and the miscellany in the home)

•Religious miscellanies

•The ownership and circulation of miscellanies

•Female writers and miscellanies

•Education (miscellanies in the school, university, educational theory)

•The materiality of the miscellaneous manuscript (layout or arrangement of
books, their material structures and construction)

•Contemporary editing or printing of miscellanies

•The manuscript miscellany in the digital age

Please send proposals, or enquiries, to Dr Christopher Burlinson,
Faculty of English, University of Cambridge ( by 31
January 2008.

We hope to be able to arrange accommodation in Cambridge for our
speakers and attendees, but cannot guarantee the availability of
accommodation to those who register for the conference after 31

What is Masculinity? How useful is it as a Historical

Birkbeck College, University of London, 14th, 15th &
16th May 2008.

Conference weblink:

In recent years, there has been an explosion in
scholarship that questions masculinity in history. This
vibrant new approach has incorporated many different
theoretical and empirical considerations in historical
scholarship. This conference, held at Birkbeck College,
University of London on 14th, 15th & 16th May 2008,
fosters discussion across fields and time period
specialism. We have groundbreaking papers in
contemporary and modern, early modern, medieval,
Classical, Ancient and non-western history, from
historians throughout the world who are working in the
general field of masculinity studies. The conference
will provide discussion of the latest thinking, debates
and contention in this field, that it will serve as a
review of ‘where we are now’ in terms of scholarship in
the field of masculinity studies. There will be three
plenary lectures, by John Tosh (Modern), Alexandra
Shepard (Early Modern) and Ruth Mazo Karras (Medieval),
and a Round Table discussion with Harry Brod
(Philosophy), Thomas Hubbard (Classics) and the three
plenary speakers.

Belgium Archaeology

From Celia Chazelle and the EMF list:
A notice that Bailey Young, History Department, Eastern Illinois
University sent my way:

He is now recruiting students for the eighth season of the Summer
Archaeology in Belgium Program and would appreciate help in bringing
it to the attention of interested students. The dates are June
29-August 2, 2008, and the program centers on the excavation of
Walhain Castle, near Louvain-la-Neuve, the partner in this project.

Students earn four credits awarded as they prefer in either History
or Earth Sciences (Honors students have special Honors credit). The
course is open to all students in good standing*; there are no
prerequisites, and no previous background in archaeology is required.
While the site is located in Wallonia, and students with some
background in French will have ample opportunity to use it (the
co-director on site is a Belgian archaeologist, and there are often
Belgian students also working on the dig) all work is done in
English, and no language background is required.

*Teams are typically made up of students from a variety of
institutions, who enroll as guest students at EIU through the School
of Continuing Education; credits are transferable.

The cost of the program, which includes tuition and fees, board and
lodging --but not overseas airfare-- is estimated at around $5000.

Gorgias Press

Book Announcement

Gorgias Press would like to announce the following book:

Web link:

* Title: Hieronymi Quaestiones Hebraicae in Libro Geneseos
* Subtitle:
* Author: Paul de Lagarde
* Series: Analecta Gorgiana
* Series Volume: 72
* ISBN: 978-1-59333-964-7
* Price: $37.7
* Format: Paperback, 6 x 9, 1 vol(s), viii + 72 pp.
* Availability: Forthcoming

Book Description

Written in the scholarly Latin of his day, Lagarde considers in this brief study the questions Jerome raises on the Hebrew of the book of Genesis. In an abridged commentary form, Lagarde follows the questions in the order in which the book of Genesis presents the material. Beginning with the creation, Lagarde skips along to the phrases of Jerome’s text that raise questions and provides his insights about them. Presuming that the reader of the Vulgate will understand the Latin of the original, the comments on the material are likewise written in Latin. In such a brief treatment, naturally the entire book of Genesis cannot be explicated, but a sufficient amount of material is addressed to reward the effort of the exegete who works through Lagarde’s observations. As useful now as when it was initially published, Lagarde’s understanding of the Latin of Genesis is worth the exploration.

Paul Anton de Lagarde (1827-1891) was a biblical scholar and student of ancient languages. Having studied at Berlin, Halle, London, and Paris, he had a wide exposure to international thought. He eventually taught at Göttingen. Despite his participation in the anti-Semitism of his day, he was a gifted student of Semitic languages. His voluminous linguistic works are still recognized for their insights into oriental languages. He made important contributions to the study of Syriac, Aramaic, Arabic, Hebrew, and Coptic, as well as Greek and Latin.

MARCO Manuscript Conference CFP

all for Proposals
Marco Manuscript Workshop: "Texts in Motion"
February 8-9, 2008
Marco Institute for Medieval and Renaissance Studies
The University of Tennessee, Knoxville

There is still time to submit a proposal for the University of
Tennessee in Knoxville's two-day workshop on manuscript studies, to
be held in February of 2008 and sponsored by the Marco Institute for
Medieval and Renaissance Studies. The workshop, organized by
Professors Maura K. Lafferty (Classics) and Roy M. Liuzza (English),
is intended to be more a class than a conference; participants will
be invited to share both their successes and frustrations, and to
work together towards developing better professional skills for
textual and paleographical work in Medieval Studies.

Last year's workshop focused on how the non-textual aspects of
manuscript presentation influence the way texts are read; this year's
workshop, "Texts in Motion," will consider the effect of time on
texts. Virtually all manuscript texts vary to some degree from one
copy to another; some texts underwent more radical expansion,
continuation, or revision, by their authors or others, and
significantly different versions of the same text circulated
alongside one another. These multiform texts raise a number of
challenging questions for a modern editor: what is the relationship,
both textual and contextual, between the different versions of the
text? Which version should form the basis for an edited text? How
can the range of textual differences be represented? How much of
this material ought to be presented? Is it possible, finally, to
capture the spirit of a medieval text in motion? We invite proposals
for presentations by anyone working on texts that have undergone
significant changes through time—abbreviation, expansion,
continuation, excerpting, quotation in other texts, dramatic changes
in format or context, even glosses and translations. The theme is
meant to be understood as broadly as possible, and we welcome
proposals that expand our definition of "text" to material objects
besides manuscripts, such as images, inscriptions, relics, or

The workshop is open to scholars and students at any rank. Individual
90-minute sessions will be devoted to each presentation; participants
will introduce their text and its context, discuss their approach to
working with this material, and exchange ideas and information with
other participants. We particularly invite proposals describing works
in progress, unusual textual problems, practical difficulties, and
new or experimental models for studying or representing texts.
Presenters will receive a stipend of $500 for their participation.

The deadline for applications is November 1, 2007. Applicants are
asked to submit a current CV and a two-page letter describing their
project to Roy M. Liuzza, Department of English, U of Tennessee, 301
McClung Tower, Knoxville, TN 37996-0430, or (preferably) via email to

The workshop is also open to scholars and students who do not wish to
present their work but may be interested in learning more about
manuscript studies. Non-presenters will not receive a stipend, but
are encouraged to participate fully in discussions and other
activities. Those wishing to attend should visit
