Haskins Society at Kalamazoo 2020

The Haskins Society is proud to be sponsoring two sessions for the 55th International Medieval Congress at Kalamazoo (10–13 May 2020) and is actively seeking proposals. 


As in the past several years,  Haskins will be sponsoring a session titled New Voices in Medieval History. Thus, this session will feature papers by early career scholars (graduate students, untenured faculty, and independent scholars). In the past, this session has provided an opportunity for scholars to present their work for the first time, to a friendly and knowledgeable audience of medieval historians. Participants in this (and other Haskins sponsored sessions) are eligible for the Denis Bethell Prize


How to submit: Please send a 250 word abstract, CV, and Participant Information Form (on the Congress website) to Nicholas Paul at npaul@fordham.edu. Proposals may be sent immediately and no later than Sunday, September 15, 2019.


Our second session turns to the long overlooked reign and person of King Philip I:  Child King, Fat King, Adulterous King, Powerful King? New Thoughts on King Philip I of Francia.  There remains no substantive biography of King Philip I of Francia (1060-1108) since 1912, despite the fact that his reign witnessed a long untroubled minority, the consolidation of Capetian power around Paris, engagement with the dukes of Normandy and counts of Flanders at their prime, the launching of the First Crusade, a supposedly bigamous marriage that threatened papal reform in Francia, and the birth of the Parisian schools. This panel will therefore bring together scholars from different disciplines, working on various aspects of late 11th-century Francia, to shed light on the center of this spider web – Philip I himself.


How to submit: Please send a 250 word abstract, CV, and Participant Information Form (on the Congress website) to Matthew Gabriele (gabriele@vt.edu). Proposals may be sent immediately and no later than Sunday, September 15, 2019.
