Abstracts of Papers

Listed by Year

Detail of opened book with schematic text. Photography © Mildred BudnyThe Abstracts of Papers published on our website for these Sessions can be accessed in two ways.

1) By Author, listed alphabetically by last name and then chronologically by Year of Presentation
2) By Year of Presentation and then by Author:  You are here.

We list the Abstracts published, as their Authors wish, for some of our Sessions (since 2007) at the International Congress on Medieval Studies, including both our Sponsored Conference Sessions and Co-Sponsored Conference Sessions.

Before our first website, Abstracts of some Papers in our Sponsored Sessions appeared in the Old English Newsletter, as reported below, with an Index to their Authors and Years.

We begin also to produce a list of the Authors of the Abstracts published in our Program Booklets for our Events elsewhere, including Seminars, Workshops, Colloquia & Symposia (available on this site at present through the Posts for their specific Events).

Here, the Names shown in GREY denote Abstracts for Papers which the Speakers were unable to present at the Congress.  We continue to post their Abstracts as a sign of the authors’ intentions for their subjects.

2020

Although the Congress itself had to be cancelled this year, we post the Abstracts for the Papers as the Participants supplied in response to the Call for Papers, as we posted them on our website ahead of time, and as they were intended for presentation in person.
