Call For Papers: Spenser at Kalamazoo

Three sessions on Edmund Spenser
42nd International Congress on Medieval Studies
Western Michigan University (Kalamazoo, Michigan)

10-13 May 2007

Abstracts may be submitted on any topic dealing with Spenser. Especially
welcome this year are papers on Spenser's shorter poems and papers on
Spenser and periodization (e.g., Spenser and Elizabethan medievalism,
Spenser and the 1590s, etc.). As always, we encourage submissions by
newcomers and by established scholars of all ranks.

Reading time for papers should be no more than twenty minutes. According
to rules established by the Congress, those submitting abstracts for one
session may not submit abstracts for other sessions in the same year.
Because Kalamazoo has traditionally encouraged experiment, preliminary
exploration, and discussion, papers submitted should not have been read
elsewhere nor be scheduled for publication in the near future.

Email submissions are encouraged. Please include home and office phone
numbers, complete mailing address, and e-mail address along with your
attachment. If you need equipment, let us know now when you submit the

Minimum length of abstract: 300 words. Maximum length: 750 words.
