Call for Papers: Vagantes Graduate Medieval Conference

*******************************************

VAGANTES is an annual, travelling conference for graduate students
studying any aspect of the Middle Ages. The conference was conceived
with several goals in mind, including the fostering of a sense of
community among graduate medievalists, providing exposure to an
interdisciplinary forum, and showcasing the resources of the host
institutions -- all kept within a student budget.

The 5th conference will be hosted by the Graduate Medievalists at UC
BERKELEY from March 2-5, 2006.

Abstracts may be submitted on ANY topic dealing with the Middle Ages
(such as: vernacularity, concepts of monstrosity or alterity, politics
and language, visualization and devotion, cross-cultural or
comparative studies, historiography, etc.). Priority will be given to
papers which demonstrate cutting-edge research and contribute
significantly to the field; papers should also strive for significance
to a broad medievalist audience.

Participants will be expected to attend the entire conference.

Please send a brief CV and an abstract of no more than 300 words by
Oct. 31, 2005 to:
Amelia Borrego (amelia.borrego_at_gmail.com)
Department of Comparative Literature, 4125 Dwinelle Hall
UC Berkeley, Berkeley, CA 94720-2510
Fax: (510)642-8852

Conference information will be updated periodically at www.vagantes.org.
