Call for Papers:   Sixth Annual Conference of the Atlantic Mediaeval Association

27-28 September 2013

Acadia University, Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada

Plenary Paper by Fiona Tolhurst on Female Spirituality in the Late Middle Ages
16:00 Friday 27 Sept (Room TBA)

The society and its conference are multi-disciplinary and we accordingly welcome proposals on all aspects of mediaeval culture.

Please send an abstract of up to 250 words, with your contact details, to the organizers: kevin.whetter@acadiau.ca and je.macdonald@acadiau.ca

Deadline 15 August

Conference fee is membership in the Society ($15.00).
NB: We ask that delegates join the society via the link on the CSM website rather than paying at the door.

The Atlantic Mediaeval Association is a small but vibrant community dedicated to fostering scholarly conversations and connections amongst mediaevalists living and working in the North Atlantic region, particularly Atlantic Canada and New England. The annual Atlantic Mediaeval Association conference encourages proposals in any relevant discipline, including history, archaeology, theology, philosophy, art history, literature in all vernacular languages and Latin, music, and the reception and use of the Middle Ages in later cultures.

Accommodations: As was the case last year, we have booked a block of rooms with a discount price ($119) at the Old Orchard Inn under “Atlantic Medieval Association.”  The rooms will be held at our rate and kept open until 2 weeks prior to arrival. Please contact the Old Orchard Inn directly to book a room:

There are also a few rooms available at the Blomidon Inn: book online rather by phone, and tell them it is for the Mediaeval conference: http://www.blomidon.ns.ca/

Conference Dinner: We once again will have the traditional Friday evening conference dinner, but as happened last year, the plan is to make a large reservation at the Blomidon Inn (where we ate last year) and then let each person pay for his or her meal. Please let us know if you plan on attending the dinner so we can confirm numbers with the restaurant. The restaurant can accommodate a wide range of dietary needs.
