13-14 October 2017
University of New Brunswick
If you are interested in presenting a paper (15-20 minutes in length, depending on number of submissions) or in organizing a paper or roundtable session, please submit a brief abstract or description of roughly 250 words to Gary Waite, copied to Edith Snook, by Friday June 16, 2017; if you require more time to prepare an abstract, simply let us know. We welcome papers from graduate and honours students, as well as from regular members of AMEMG.
We have set this deadline to allow out of town participants to make arrangements for accommodations. Papers can be on any subject relating to the pre-modern era, in any discipline, and can be presented in either English or French. Participants will be notified as soon as possible after submission, and a preliminary program will be disseminated by early July.
Our keynote presenter this year will be none other than Randall Martin, Department of English, UNB, who on the Friday evening will deliver the (public) keynote address: Early English Environmental History / Shakespeare / Ecological Modernity.
There will be registration and a welcoming reception (wine and cheese, etc) on the Friday late afternoon/evening. If we receive more submissions than can be covered for a Saturday, we may extend into Sunday morning or consider concurrent sessions.
Formal confirmation of attendance will be required by the end of August so that we can have a firm fix on numbers. More information on accommodations is available here.
For further information contact Gary Waite.
