3rd Annual Conference of the Atlantic Medieval Association
September 24th-25th, 2010
Dalhousie University and King’s College
Halifax, Nova Scotia
The third annual Atlantic Medieval Association conference encourages proposals in any relevant discipline, including history, theology, philosophy, literature in all vernacular languages and Latin, and the reception and use of the Middle Ages in later cultures; we especially encourage papers examining the regions which border the North Atlantic. This year’s conference will be held on September 24th-25th at Dalhousie University and King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The keynote speaker will be Prof. Stephen Gersh (Medieval Institute, University of Notre Dame), entitled “Hellenism in 15th Century Philosophy: Two Case-Studies (Nicholas of Cusa and Marsilio Ficino).” The newly conceived Atlantic Medieval Association is dedicated to fostering scholarly conversations and connections amongst medievalists living and working in the North Atlantic region, particularly Atlantic Canada and New England.
Paper proposals of approximately 300 words are invited in any discipline and any topic in the area of medieval studies. Graduate students are more than welcome to submit proposals and to attend. Please submit 300 word abstracts by August 20th, 2010, to Michael Fournier at Dalhousie University: Michael.Fournier@dal.ca.
