Call For Papers: Spenser at Kalamazoo
Three sessions on Edmund Spenser
42nd International Congress on Medieval Studies
Western Michigan University (Kalamazoo, Michigan)
10-13 May 2007
Abstracts may be submitted on any topic dealing with Spenser. Especially welcome this year are papers on Spenser's shorter poems and papers on Spenser and periodization (e.g., Spenser and Elizabethan medievalism, Spenser and the 1590s, etc.). As always, we encourage submissions by newcomers and by established scholars of all ranks.
Reading time for papers should be no more than twenty minutes. According to rules established by the Congress, those submitting abstracts for one session may not submit abstracts for other sessions in the same year. Because Kalamazoo has traditionally encouraged experiment, preliminary exploration, and discussion, papers submitted should not have been read elsewhere nor be scheduled for publication in the near future.
Email submissions are encouraged. Please include home and office phone numbers, complete mailing address, and e-mail address along with your attachment. If you need equipment, let us know now when you submit the abstract.
Minimum length of abstract: 300 words. Maximum length: 750 words.
Deadline: 15 September 2006.
Please direct questions and abstracts to:
David Scott Wilson-Okamura
Department of English
