Call for Papers

41st International Congress on Medieval Studies

Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI

May 4-7, 2006

While many disciplines within Medieval Studies are well-represented at
major conferences, often the voice of the two-year college instructor is
not emphasized. Although it is usually not intentional, two-year
colleges are often left out of the equation when discussing serious
scholarship, especially in the field of Medieval Studies. In this
session we will discuss both how much more is possible now in two-year
colleges (since the job market collapse has led so many who might not
otherwise have considered such positions to pursue them) and how we
teach medieval subjects in the context of less specific curricula (such
as a Liberal Arts major rather than Religion, History, or English).

This session might best work as a roundtable, but full-length proposals
are also welcome. Please send abstracts by September 15th to
