CFP: Undergraduate Medieval Studies Conference

The Tenth Moravian College Undergraduate Conference in Medieval and Early Modern Studies will be held on Saturday December 5, 2015. We sincerely welcome contributions from all departments in explorations of connection to the period between approx. 500 C.E. and 1800 C.E. In the past, we’ve had some great papers, panels, and poster presentations that began as coursework, in addition to engaging performances in music, drama, and dance.

The typical presentation format consists of a 15-minute paper or a 45-minute group performance, but alternative formats would certainly be considered. The deadline for the submission of proposals is Nov. 6. Registration will again be free for both presenters and attendees. Registration and submission of proposals opens October 1, via the conference website. For a brief preview of this year’s conference and a look at past conferences, please visit our website at: The conference has generally drawn over 200 people and typically features presentations and performances by approximately 100 students from 30 schools or so. Other highlights of this year’s conference will be a plenary presentation by Prof. Michael Drout (Dept. of English, Wheaton College); a performance entitled “Perpetual Motion” by Galileo’s Daughters (; and demonstrations and exhibits by artisans. We’ll be updating the website in the fall with additional details for this year’s conference.
