Vagantes 2011

Call for Papers for the
Vagantes Medieval Graduate Student Conference
March 3–5, 2011
University of Pittsburgh

Vagantes is one of the largest conferences in North America for
graduate students studying the Middle Ages. Vagantes aims to provide
an open dialogue among junior scholars from all fields of medieval
studies. The conference features two faculty speakers, twenty-four
student papers, and an audience of approximately 100 people. Each
year, presenters from backgrounds as varied as Comparative Literature,
Archaeology, Art History, Classics, History, Anthropology, English,
Philosophy, Manuscript Studies, Musicology, and Religious Studies come
together to exchange ideas. In this manner, Vagantes fosters a sense
of community for junior medievalists of diverse backgrounds, and
because the conference does not have a registration fee, this
community can flourish within the margins of a graduate student

Abstracts for twenty-minute papers are invited from graduate students
working on any medieval topic. E-mail a brief curriculum vitae and
abstract of no more than 300 words by 25 October 2010 to:

Karen Adams
Department of French and Italian
