Translatio: Knowledge Migrations of the Medieval and Early Modern Periods
Joint Conference of the Atlantic Medieval Association
& the Atlantic Medieval and Early Modern Group
Mount Allison University, Sackville, NB
12-13 October 2018
Registration will be on EventBrite and we will open that closer to the conference date: the registration fee will be $60, with $40 reduced rate for graduate students, sessional/stipendiary faculty, and independent scholars. The registration fee includes a reception on Friday evening and lunch on Saturday, as well as coffee breaks and light snacks throughout both days.
Participants will arrange their own accommodation: Rooms are being held for the AMA/AMEMG members at a B&B and a motel (see below): tell them you are attending the conference when you book. The rooms are only held until September 12, so book as soon as you can.
Savoy Arms: This small B&B will hold 3 rooms under the conference name until September 12. Their rate is $110/night and includes breakfast. The Savoy Arms does not take credit or debit cards, so people staying there will have to pay with cash or cheque. Tel: 506-536-0790.
Coastal Inn: Rooms are being held under the conference name until September 12. The rooms each have 2 double beds, and the rate is $105 plus tax/night and includes breakfast. Tel: 506-536-0000.
Please note that Sackville is a very small town and does get sold out of accommodation spaces on fall weekends: book early!
Please let us know about any dietary requirements!
As this conference is run on a “bijou budget,” participants will need to pay for their own meals, aside from the reception on Friday (which will include food) and Saturday’s lunch, both of which are included in the registration fee.
Friday lunch: Since the conference is starting at 1pm on Friday, we advise that you eat lunch before arriving. We will reserve space at the University Club that day for anyone who wants to eat there (they do a nice lunch service): as we get closer to the date we will ask for RSVPs for that.
Friday dinner: Traditionally we’ve booked a space in a restaurant on Friday nights for a late dinner after the plenary, and we plan on doing that again this year – and in the early fall we’ll also contact you about an RSVP for that too. The reception at the university club that evening, however, will include food to tide you over!
Saturday dinner: On Saturday night we’ll arrange something informal for people who are staying in town – perhaps simply hanging out at one of the local pubs and ordering food in from a local establishment. We’ll keep you posted on those plans.
