Ways to participate:
Of course, you can always attend the Colloquium as a guest. But if you would like to be part of the program, there are several ways you can participate as a presenter at the Colloquium:
Submit a Paper Abstract (due Nov 1):
Proposals for papers can touch upon any aspect of the general theme, and we encourage proposals from medievalists of any discipline and any geographic area. Scholars can apply to the general call, or to specific sub-themes. We accept proposals from anyone with a Ph.D. or who is in the process of gaining a doctorate. Abstracts should be submitted by November 1, 2023.
Propose a Panel (due Nov 1):
We also invite participants to submit whole panels of papers, that is, a pre-organized panel. Professional organizations often submit panels from among their membership, but individual are also invited to do the same. To submit a full panel, you need to send a description of the panel, a CV and abstract for the papers you would like to include, and suggestions for possible respondents. Panel proposals are due November 1, 2023.
If you are a current graduate student or an Early Career Researcher (Ph.D. after June 1, 2021), please consider applying for the R.W. Southern Prize.
