Estimable fellow Hispanist Rosa Vidal Doval, of whom I can say no ill since she got me into the Early Medieval Symposium at Queen Mary on which I reported a while back, has asked me to publicise the next gathering of the Medieval Hispanic Research Seminar there, to take place on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 June this year, naturally at Queen Mary University of London. She is under some hopeful impression that Hispanists read this screed with interest, and who knows, maybe some do… The actual submission sheet is therefore up in my webspace, but the bits you most need to know are as follows:
The Nineteenth Colloquium of the Medieval Hispanic Research Seminar will take place on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 June 2008.
Papers concerning any aspect of the literature, language, history and culture of the Iberian Peninsula in the Middle Ages will be considered. In order to ensure that there is enough time for questions and discussion all papers will last a maximum of twenty minutes. Papers may be delivered in English or Spanish.
Accommodation is available in College halls of residence on campus near the Arts Faculty where the sessions will held. Unfortunately no grants are available for participants but we have made every effort to keep the costs of registration, accommodation and food to a minimum.
If you wish to take part please fill in the form at the bottom of this sheet and send it to Rosa Vidal Doval, Colloquium Organizing Committee, Department of Hispanic Studies, Queen Mary, University of London, Mile End Road, London E1 4NS. Fax: 44 20 8980 5400; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for submitting proposals for papers, including a short abstract (150 words maximum), is 16 April 2008.
So there you go. Those who put CFPs in their blogs by all means feel free to circulate this one. And I can recommend QMUL’s hospitality, if that helps :-)
