We are soliciting one-page abstracts from CMS students for papers dealing with all aspects of medieval studies. Abstracts that respond directly to the provisional theme of the colloquium, “Art, Language, Knowledge: Urban Life in the Middle Ages,” will be most welcome, but those that extend beyond or fall outside the proposed theme will also be given full consideration.
The colloquium is jointly sponsored by the Centre for Medieval Studies and the
Mittelalterzentrum of the Universität Freiburg and will take place at Freiburg on 3–5 November 2011. The aim is to promote discussion and exchange between graduate students and faculty from both institutions. Costs for travel and accommodation will be covered, and six abstracts will be selected on a competitive basis.
