Sponsored by GW MEMSI, the roundtable is scheduled for Thursday May 7 at 1:30 PM (Valley III, Stinson Lounge). Information below.

How to Get the Medieval Studies You Want: Institutional Perspectives (A Roundtable)
Sponsor: Medieval and Early Modern Studies Institute, George Washington University
Presider: Jeffrey Jerome Cohen, George Washington Univ.
  • Communities and Networks on the Margins (Stephanie Trigg, University of Melbourn)
  • Post-Institutional Assemblages and the Desiring Machine of BABEL (Eileen A. Joy, Southern Illinois Univ.–Edwardsville)
  • The Medieval Studies You Might Not Want (Carolyn Dinshaw, New York University)

Please note that even though Stinson is described as a "lounge" you will not actually be able to enjoy a martini with your roundtable, unless you bring your own. And if you do bring your own, please be kind and bring enough to share.

Hope you can join us.

Flight gets in at 12:46 that day, god willing, so likely I'll go straight to this session, suitcase in hand, instead of the hotel.
