Rowan University's Second Annual Symposium on Medieval Studies

Date: July 31 - August 1, 2015

I am pleased to announce Rowan University's Second Annual Symposium on Medieval and Early Modern Studies. Last year's inaugural symposium was a great success, bringing in scholars from multiple states and from as far afield as England, Australia, and the Ukraine, and a collection of selected essays presented at the conference is currently under negotiation with Ashgate.

This year's symposium is entitled 'Representation and Reality in the Medieval Church', and we are welcoming interdisciplinary papers from professional scholars and postgraduate researchers alike. This will be a two-day symposium, from 31 July - 1 August 2015, on the main campus of Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ; this year, the event is being co-sponsored by both Rowan and the University of Kent. There will be multiple sessions and plenary presentations by Dr. Barbara Bombi and Dr. Sarah James, both of the University of Kent. In addition, last year's undergraduate panel was so well received that we will be continuing that tradition with four undergraduate students presenting 15-minute papers. We would especially like to encourage submissions from undergraduates outside of Rowan, as well, as this is an excellent chance for students to receive conference experience in a constructive, non-threatening environment.

I have attached the call for papers; as stated, submissions should be emailed to rowanmedievalsymposium@gmail.com by 1 May 2015. Any questions can be directed to myself, Jon-Mark Grussenmeyer (jg482@kent.ac.uk), and further information can be found on our website: http://rumedievalsymposium.wix.com/medieval-symposium.

Lastly, please do pass this information on to any relevant contacts that you might have. Thank you in advance for your help and support.

Respectfully yours,

Jon-Mark Grussenmeyer
University of Kent
