47th International Congress on Medieval Studies

10–13 May 2012

[First published on our first website on *15 December 2011, with updates there and here]

Our four Sponsored and Co-Sponsored Sessions at the 2012 Congress examined the material culture and production of written records in Western Europe and beyond, and the dispersal, recovery, and preservation of those works in various forms and widespread locations.  Besides these interlinked subjects, our highlighted genre was “Dream Books”, appearing in multiple manifestations in both manuscript and print.

One Session was the second in our series at the Congress on “Medieval Writing Materials”.  Its series (2011–2014 and, intended, 2016) is listed in our Sponsored Conference Sessions.

This year, for the first time, after the debut of a single illustrated Poster for one of our sponsored Sessions at the 2011 Congress, an illustrated Posters accompanied both of our own Sponsored Sessions.  Since 2015, the full series of illustrated Posters for Congress Sessions and other Events appear in our Gallery of Posters on Display.
