CFP: Freiburg-Toronto Graduate Student Colloquium 2012

The Centre is soliciting one-page abstracts from CMS students for 30 minute papers to be delivered at next fall’s Freiburg-Toronto Graduate Student Colloquium (October 4-6), which will be held in Toronto. The theme, “Integrating Bodies of Knowledge”, reflects the essential point of the colloquium exchange, namely, a broad range of research explored across academic disciplines and international perspectives. Abstracts on any medieval topic will be given full consideration.

This colloquium is jointly sponsored by the Centre for Medieval Studies and the Mittelalterzentrum of the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg. Participants will present their work as part of a three-day-long exchange of ideas and techniques with scholars from Freiburg. Each paper will have a respondent, a specialist chosen from the faculty of the partner institution, to offer insight and direct discussion. Costs for lunch and dinner will be covered for CMS presenters. Six abstracts will be selected on a competitive basis.

Abstracts should be submitted by 16 May to Professor John Magee (email hidden; JavaScript is required).
