Abstracts from graduate students are now being accepted for the 32nd Annual New England Medieval Studies Consortium Graduate Student Conference, the theme of which will be "Travel and Translation in the Middle Ages." In light of recent endeavors such as the Global Chaucers project, the growing interest in the multilingual cultures of England, and the upcoming anniversaries of two great medieval councils, Fourth Lateran (1215) and Constance (1415), "travel" and "translation" are immediately relevant to many branches of medieval studies.

"Soon after the Braincap came into general use, some highly intelligent—and maximally zealous—bureaucrats realized that it had a unique potential as an early-warning system. During the setting-up process, when the new wearer was being mentally "calibrated," it was possible to detect many forms of psychosis before they hand a chance of becoming dangerous." —Clarke, 3001: The Final Odyssey
