You have five months, starting roughly now, to procrastinate on writing your papers. Please use the time as wisely as you can.
Thanks for posting these Kalamazoo sessions, Karl. For clarification purposes, although I am listed as the organizer for the BABEL and "postmedieval" sessions--because the Congress paperwork makes it difficult to do otherwise--the Transcultural Middle Ages panel was organized by Laurie Finke and Marty Shichtman, David Hadbawnik conceptualized and organized the Queering the Muse panel, and Mo Pareles conceptualized and organized the Madness panel. I am just the "middle-man."
Cool. Made a subtle edit to the post that will point people in the right direction.
Well, one of my panels is across from the Beowulf panel, and the other is at freakin' 8:30 freakin' Sunday. A-freakin'-gain.
Carolingianists - just put 'em anywhere, especially across from each other.
All I can say is "!"
And that there is a typo in the title of Lowell Duckert's paper. He is presenting "The Ice Age is Never Over." Though, in a way, it is also never one.
I've alerted the congress...
So, I would also add here as definitely worth going to:
Surface versus Symptomatic Readings
Sponsor: Exemplaria: A Journal of Theory in Medieval and Renaissance Studies
Organizer: Tison Pugh, Univ. of Central Florida
Presider: Patricia Clare Ingham, Indiana Univ.–Bloomington, and Elizabeth D.
Scala, Univ. of Texas–Austin
Symptoms of a Malady
Ruth Evans, St. Louis Univ.
The Persistence of the Symptom
Mark Miller, Univ. of Chicago
Surface Reading on Its Face
Bruce Holsinger, Univ. of Virginia
Saturday, 10:00 am, Schneider 2335
Thanks for posting these. Since they don't conflict with the other panels you already listed in this post, I hope you won't mind if I add two more?
Thursday afternoon, 1:30, Session 77 (Schneider 1220): Digital Initiatives: The Cusanus-Portal and Accessing HMML Manuscripts
This is sponsored by the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library (HMML) and the American Cusanus Society. Matt Heintzelman, from Hill Museum & Manuscript Library will be presiding.
The Cusanus-Portal ( www [dot] cusanus-portal [dot] de ) is a digital initiative funded over the past 5 years by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).
While many of you may not be interested per se in the *content* of the Cusanus-Portal, many of you may find interesting the sort of thing we are trying to accomplish with the portal, i.e., putting online a free, searchable version of Cusa's opera omnia based on the critical edition and various translations [German, English], as well as an online searchable lexicon and bibliography.
In addition to all the Cusa-heads, Wayne Torborg of the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library will be there as our third panelist, talking about "Not Yet Google, but Working on It: Online Search Aids at the Hill Museum &
Also, on Friday at 5:15, if you won't be at the BABEL Business Meeting, steal a glass of wine from somewhere and come hear the 2011 Morimichi Watanabe Lecture, which will take place in Valley I, room 106.
This year the ACS has invited John Van Engen, Tackes Professor of History at Notre Dame, who will talk about Marguerite (Porete) of Hainaut, the Religious Life, and the Low Countries.
I think (or hope) you've left off the last two papers of the "Transcultural" panel: Neurobiological Alphabets: Foreign Language Systems in Rabanus Maurus,
Boccaccio, and Mandeville
Matthew Boyd Goldie, Rider Univ.
It’s a Poem: A Present Day Use of the Andalusian Muwassaha
Heather Bamford, Univ. of California–Berkeley/College of William and Mary
I'm pretty excited about that panel!
Chris: thanks for that clarification. I just re-checked that preview Congress schedule, and YES, those 2 sessions are on there [I think Karl just did not "turn the page," as it were].
Thanks, Eileen, although you're hardly just a middle-man (pun acknowledged). And thanks, Karl, Dan, and others who listed events. I'm excited already. I was bemused to get a postcard from ICMS asking for my mailing address.
It's just Liza (or Liza!). As far as the academy is concerned, there is no Elizabeth Blake ...
