Updated MEMSI Spring Events

Join us over the next few months for:

1) Friday, 2/11 at 12 PM: Maghan Keita (Villanova) lunch seminar. His two essays -- "Missing Chapters in Afro-Medievalism, or What the Bookstore Hid" and "Power and Beauty: The Pleasures and Dangers of Blackness in Medieval and Renaissance Representations" -- are already available for circulation. Please RSVP to me [] if you wish to attend.

2) Thursday, 2/24 at 4 PM: Book launch celebration for Gil Harris (George Washington University) and Madhavi Menon (American University). Professor Harris's book, Shakespeare and Literary Theory, was recently published by Oxford UP and Professor Menon's edited collection, Shakesqueer, was just released by Duke UP.

3) Friday 3/11 and Saturday 3/12: Our massive conference, "Animal, Vegetable, Mineral: Ethics and Objects in the Medieval and Early Modern Periods."

4) Friday, 4/1 at 9 AM: Suzanne Miller (George Washington University) breakfast seminar. "Christiano non dicam rectore sed fidei perversore: Episcopal Resistance to Outside Rule in the North Adriatic and in Europe, c. 1100-1350." The paper is pre-circulated. Again, please RSVP to me [] if you wish to attend.

All events (except the AVMEO conference) take place in Rome Hall 771 (801 22nd St. NW). As each date approaches, I will post more information about the event on the blog.

Hope to see you at all four!
