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 (
Department of Comparative Literature, 4125 Dwinelle Hall
