A few of you have e-mailed to ask me about this year’s SEMA—the Southeastern Medieval Association—meeting.  Others of you may be awaiting the call for papers and or be interested in the conference, or know someone who may be and or to whom you could forward this e-mail and the cfp.  Others, just please forgive me for including you if you are not interested—or if I made an error in including you!

SEMA 2013 will take place Oct. 3-5, 2013 at Appalachian State University, Boone, NC.  I am attaching the call for papers sent to me by Mary Valente (because I was guilty of “bugging her” for it), one of the organizers, whom I have copied on this e-mail.  Proposals for sessions or abstracts (250 words or less) for papers are due to Mary Valante and Alison Gulley at  by June 14th, 2013.  I hope you will consider attending—and friending SEMA on Facebook!

For those of you unfamiliar with SEMA, the Association will soon celebrate its 40th anniversary as a conference for medievalists.  We have a journal, Medieval Perspectives, and yearly conferences—usually in October, but occasionally in September or November—at different host institutions.  Last year’s conference was hosted by the University of Southern Mississippi on the beautiful Gulf Coast and included a bonfire on the beach.  This year’s, as you can see, is at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC , at a beautiful time of the year.
