We are pleased to announce the 2013 annual conference of the Illinois Medieval Association, co-sponsored by Newberry Center for Renaissance Studies, on February 15-16, 2013. It will take place at the Newberry Library in Chicago.

This year’s theme will be “Piety, Ritual, and Heresy: The Varieties of Medieval Religious Experience.” We invite papers from across the disciplines; we will give preference to submissions related to the conference theme, but abstracts on any aspect of medieval studies are welcome.

We welcome proposals for individual papers as well as whole sessions. Three-paper sessions will be scheduled for 90 minutes, with 20 minutes for each paper plus time for discussion. Proposals should include a short abstract of the proposed paper of not more than one page, or an abstract for each paper in a proposed session, as well as contact information for the individual submitting the proposal. Submit proposals to Karen Christianson (christiansonk@newberry.org) no later than October 15, 2012.
