CFP on Hincmar!!

Sorry folks, I got busy doing a cross-continental move and left this one too long! So if you're interested in Hincmar, drop the organizers a quick note!

Call for Papers: Hincmar of Rheims at IMC 2012

The nineteenth International Medieval Congress will take place in Leeds from 9-12 July 2012. We are hoping to put together several sessions on Hincmar, Archbishop of Rheims (845-882), whose text De Divortio Lotharii regis et Theutbergae reginae we are currently translating. Hincmar is a central figure for historians working in a great number of fields, and to a great degree shapes our vision of the later Carolingian empire. However, though he and his writings have never been short of students, there has been no attempt to provide an overarching study since Devisse's book, published in 1976.

We would welcome 20 minute papers on any aspects of Hincmar's life and work as politician, author, liturgist, hagiographer and churchman. Please circulate this to anyone you know who might be interested in giving such a paper. We will be submitting proposal for sessions in September 2011, so please let us know if you are interested by the end of August. For further details, or to offer a paper, please contact:

Dr Rachel Stone ( or Dr Charles West (
