First, run outside and hug some medievalists, or, hug yourself. Second, take note that we have extended the deadline for submission of presentation proposals for the 2nd Biennial Meeting of the BABEL Working Group, "cruising in the ruins: the question of disciplinarity in the post/medieval university," to be held in Boston on 20-22 September 2012. You do not want to miss a conference where sessions have been organized around the topics [and activities] of the alehouse, impurity, punking, going "rogue," the Se7en Undeadly ScIeNceS, and wayzgooses. Plus, we will be introducing the Staffordshire Hoard cocktail [mixology by Karen Overbey]. You can see the listing of organized sessions, with contact information for session organizers, here:
Call for Presentations: 2012 Meeting of the BABEL Working Group
If you'd like to submit an individual presentation proposal, you may do so directly to Kathleen Kelly and me at: email@example.com. Now please, go back to your hugging, and to your being hugged.
