CALL FOR PAPERS:
LATE ANTIQUITY and PROSOPOGRAPHY
The Society for Late Antiquity will be sponsoring three sessions at
the International Medieval Studies Congress, May 3-6, 2007, at Wes-
tern Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Mich. As in the past,topics
are open. One-page abstracts for 15-minute papers are invited rela-
ting to the history, literature, religion, art, archaeology, culture,
and society of Late Antiquity (that is, the European, North African,
and Western Asian world ca. 250-750). Attention should be given to
how the paper relates to Late Antiquity as a discrete period with its
own individual characteristics. Abstracts also are being accepted for
a session on "Early Medieval Prosopogography" (ca. 250-750) sponsored
by Medieval Prosopograpy.
Abstracts may be forwarded, preferably by e-mail, to Ralph Mathisen
at firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com. Deadline for receipt
of abstracts is September 15, 2006.
Please note that with the exception of a few awards (information
available from conference organizers at http://www.wmich.edu/
medieval/congress) there is no travel funding available for partici-
pants, and that the submission of an abstract carries with it a com-
mitment to attend the conference should the abstract be accepted.
