Objects Abstracts

by J J Cohen

I'm just back from the New Chaucer Society program committee meeting in St Louis -- where I flew directly from having given a paper at SUNY Buffalo. So I'm a little tired, but I have a lecture on Marie de France to compose this morning, and have armed myself against lethargy via a very large cup of coffee. Look for an official announcement of the NCS program threads for Portland 2012 in the near future.

In the meantime, you may enjoy reading the abstracts for the nine plenaries at the GW MEMSI conference Animal, Vegetable, Mineral: Objects and Ethics in the Early Modern and Medieval Periods. And don't miss the fun: you still have time to propose a paper or session. The deadline is October 15 and the information you need is here.

As a wee demi-Papillon, I am very interested in the turn to animal studies and I shall be in attendance, Burberry suitcases in tow [made from turtle hides, I might add].
