This year's theme is "The View from the North during the Middle Ages." We invite the best undergraduate scholarship to come nuance, confirm, perhaps even overthrow our theme. Further details on proposing a paper topic are available in our Call for Papers. In addition, we continue to welcome still more disciplines to the conference. Thus, this year's conference will also feature music, drama, art, and military technology. Full details are available at the Conference Website
Our plenary speakers highlight the diversity of medieval studies in the United States, as we draw upon the resources of our region and beyond. Joining us in 2015 will be medieval archaeologist and Old Norse saga-translator Dr. Jesse Byock, UCLA, whose work includes new guides to learning Old Norse; and Anglo-Saxonist Dr. Lilla Kopár, The Catholic University, Washington, DC, who specializes in Old English texts and Viking Age monuments.
