The Society for Late Antiquity will again sponsor three sessions at the International Medieval Studies Congress, May 9-12, 2013, at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI.
As in the past, topics are open. One-page abstracts for 15-minute papers are invited relating to the history, literature, religion, art, archaeology, culture, and society of Late Antiquity (that is, the European, North African, and Western Asian world ca. 250-750). Attention should be given to how the paper relates to Late Antiquity as a discrete period with its own individual characteristics.
Titles and abstracts may be forwarded to Ralph Mathisen at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is September 15, 2012. Abstracts must be accompanied by an e-copy of the participant information form available at www.wmich.edu/medieval/files/pif-2013.doc or http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/files/pif-2013.pdf.
Please note that with the exception of a few awards (information available from conference organizers at http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/congress) there is no travel funding available for participants, and that the submission of an abstract carries with it a commitment to attend the conference should the abstract be accepted.
