CFP: Texas Medieval Association 2017

Wes þu hal,

As many of you who know me are aware, I have been a member of the Texas Medieval Association for most of my professional career. I am pleased to say that this year’s meeting of the Texas Medieval Association will take place at my own institution, Baylor University, on September 29-30. I am honestly excited to help host all of my medievalist colleagues, both from Texas and across the world. The conference website can be found here.  Below is the CFP:

Baylor University is pleased to invite papers and panels on all topics in medieval studies for TEMA 2017.  Both abstracts for individual papers and sets of abstracts for full sessions are welcome. We especially welcome papers and panels focusing on the 2017 conference theme:author and all related words.  Possible foci include but are by no means limited to:

                           AUTHOR

                           AUTHORITY

                           AUTHORITATIVE

                           AUTHORSHIP

                           COLLECTIVE AUTHORSHIP

                          AUTHORIAL

                          ANTI-AUTHORIAL

Papers may be delivered in either English or Spanish. If the presentation language will be Spanish, please specify this. Send abstracts (in English) of approximately 200 words to Cristian Bratu (Cristian_Bratu@baylor.edu) no later than August 1st, 2017. Early submission is encouraged: rolling acceptance will begin on and space may become limited after this date. Among proposals for full sessions, those including participants from more than one institution will be given priority. A prize will be awarded for the best paper by a graduate student. 

I hope to see everyone in September!

Cheers,

Perry
