The Graduate Association of Medieval Studies (GAMS) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison welcomes submissions for its 5th Annual Medieval Studies Colloquium.

5th Annual Medieval Studies Colloquium

“Land, Law and Literature”

April 6-7, 2018
University of Wisconsin-Madison
The UW-Madison GAMS Colloquium offers an opportunity for graduate students in multiple disciplines to present their research in the various fields of medieval studies, share and receive feedback, and participate in discussion on topics of interest with peers from a wider, interdisciplinary community of Medieval Studies scholars.
The two days of the Colloquium will include four structured panels of presentations, two lunch workshops, as well as two keynote speakers: Professor Thomas McSweeney (William & Mary) and Professor Scott Thompson Smith (Penn State). A reception will conclude the Colloquium on Saturday afternoon, for casual conversation and follow-up questions to the presenters and keynote speakers.

We invite abstracts for 20 minute papers from graduate and advanced undergraduate students on topics relating to the Middle Ages, including topics relating to Late Antiquity and the early Renaissance. Papers should be in English and will be followed by 10 minutes for discussion. This year’s topic and keynote presentations center around issues of law, land and literature, but submissions on all topics of medieval interest are encouraged. Please submit your abstract of no more than 300 words to [email protected] by January 31, 2018 for consideration.
