Shakespeare at Kalamazoo will sponsor two sessions at the 46th International Congress of Medieval Studies to be hosted by Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan, between May 12 and May 15, 2011. They have issued the following call for papers:
We welcome individual paper proposals for a session on “Shakespeare’s Middle Ages” and a session on “Hamlet: Pre-Texts, Texts, and After-Texts.” Please note that the Medieval Institute has rules governing participation in the Congress (http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/congress/policies.html) and for the submission of abstracts (http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/congress/submissions/index.html); these must be followed.
Please send abstracts of no more than 300 words in MS Word or Rich Text Format, and the Participant Information Form, which is available on the Congress Web site, to Katy Stavreva, Department of English and Creative Writing, Cornell College, Mt. Vernon, IA 52314, e-mail: email@example.com, tel. 319-895-4255.
The deadline for receipt of abstracts is September 15, 2010. The final decision on the paper selection for the panels is to be submitted to the Medieval Institute by October 1, by which time you will be notified whether your submission has been accepted for presenting at the Congress.
Thank you for your attention to these various matters. The selection committee of Shakespeare at Kalamazoo is looking forward to reading your proposals.
