ITM readers in or near DC, mark your calendars: on Friday November 7 the newly formed GW Medieval and Early Modern Studies Institute (GW MEMSI) will sponsor its first symposium, "Touching the Past." Four scholars will be presenting on the theme: Peggy McCracken, Eileen Joy, Julian Yates, and Carolyn Dinshaw.
The event is free and welcomes anyone who would like to attend. Details in the early autumn.
PS: I'm also pleased to announce that GW MEMSI will be sponsoring a panel at Kalamazoo 2009: "How to Get the Medieval Studies You Want: Institutional Perspectives." Presenting at this round table will be Bonnie Wheeler, Stephanie Trigg, Carolyn Dinshaw, Ethan Knapp, Malcolm Litchfield, and the ubiquitous Eileen Joy.
