The Louisiana Consortium of Medieval and Renaissance Scholars will hold its annual meeting this fall at Tulane University in New Orleans on October 13-14, 2012. The Consortium welcomes scholars from across the gulf coast region in addition to the initial core group from Louisiana universities and colleges.

The LCMRS, which began in September 2003 at Louisiana State University, is a multi-disciplinary annual meeting of scholars in the Medieval and Renaissance fields of study. Our meeting will consist of four sessions (four 15-minute papers in each session) including a session on rare books at Tulane, a luncheon, and a reception. If the influx of paper proposals is very large, we can reserve an additional meeting room for concurrent sessions. Paper topics on any area of Medieval or Renaissance studies are welcome, but we hope to organize sessions on the following:
Teaching early periods and working with local resources in the classroom
Pre- and Early Modern Studies in the Americas
A graduate student session
Audio-visual needs can be accommodated and should be noted on the proposal form below.

Participants need to arrange their own hotel accommodations.

Finally, please share this news with your colleagues, in case we have missed some of our number. I hope to see you at the Consortium and continue the LCMRS!
