Machaut at Kalamazoo

International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, Michigan (12-15 May 2011)

The International Machaut Society will sponsor three sessions and a business luncheon at the 2011 conference:

Resources for Machaut Research and Study (A Roundtable)
Expression in Machaut
Machaut in Fourteenth-Century Contexts

The session titles listed above are meant to be taken in the broadest sense possible.  We strongly encourage submissions on any topic relating to the life, works, and times of Guillaume de Machaut (c. 1300-77), especially those that touch on interdisciplinary issues.  Contributions to the roundtable should be in the 10-15 minute range to allow for a variety of speakers and adequate discussion time.  Contributions to the other sessions should be 20 minutes in length.

Proposals should include an abstract of no more than 300 words and a completed Participant Information Form (required by the Medieval Institute); the form is available at .  Please note that information on the form cannot be saved unless you have Adobe Acrobat Writer (not the free reader), so you must print the completed form and mail or fax it. 

Please e-mail proposals to Jennifer Bain at .  SUBMISSIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY 15 SEPTEMBER 2010.
