Dear Colleague:

The very good news of 2012’s International Congress was that 3,067 medievalists came once
again to Kalamazoo marking the eighth consecutive year that our registration exceeded three
thousand. Once gathered, we collectively took part in 574 numbered sessions, two plenary
addresses, and dozens of receptions, lunches, and business meetings. We also celebrated the
fiftieth anniversary of the first “Conference” on Medieval Studies with a reception at the
Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. And last, but by no means least, there were the hallway
conversations, the chance meetings with publishers, the brainstorming until dawn, the
Pseudo Society, which do so much to recharge and rededicate us to our disciplines.

Once again, there will be no place like Kalamazoo for medieval studies, May 9–12, 2013. But
it is time to set to work. This Call for Papers shows that planning for next year is already well
advanced, requiring your immediate attention if you plan to deliver a paper. Many session
organizers begin recruiting potential participants as early as the previous Congress, and as a
result sessions may become fully subscribed any time before the 15 September deadline for
paper proposals. Thus if you are interested in giving a paper, we encourage early submissions
addressed to the contact person for a Sponsored or Special Session or to the Congress Committee
for a General Session.

We are delighted that the Radisson Plaza Hotel has completed its recent renovations and remains
our downtown anchor this year. We have finalized our two plenary speakers for Friday and
Saturday; they are Peregrine Horden of All Souls College, Oxford, and Mary Carruthers of
New York University and All Souls College, Oxford University. The title of Professor Horden’s
address is “Poseidon’s Oar: Horizons of the Medieval Mediterranean;” that of Professor
Carruther’s is “Augustinian Intention and Medieval Aesthetic.” We are grateful to the Medieval
Academy of America and Boydell & Brewer for their continued sponsorship of the plenary
addresses. And to complete our year-long celebration of the founding of Western Michigan
University’s Medieval Institute and its Conference/Congress, we welcome Anonymous 4 who
will present a concert on Friday evening.

Please remember our travel awards, which include one supported by the Otto Gründler Memorial
Fund. Address any and all questions about the Congress to the Medieval Institute via voice, FAX,
snail mail, or email. The latest news and updates are to be found on the Congress website.

Spring will come again to Western Michigan and with it the 48th International Congress on
Medieval Studies. Please come and join us.

SOME CONGRESS POLICIES

Paper presenter eligibility
All those working in the field of medieval studies, including graduate students and independent
scholars and artists, are eligible to give a paper, if accepted, in any session. Enrolled undergradu-
ate students, however, may give a paper, if accepted, only in the “Papers by Undergraduates”
Special Session(s).

Presider eligibility
No participant may preside and give a paper in the same session.

Respondent eligibility
No participant may give a paper and serve as a respondent in the same session.

Agreement to deliver papers in person
Submission of a paper proposal is considered agreement by the author to attend the Congress and
to deliver the paper in person if it is accepted. It is a matter of Congress policy that papers are not
read in absentia.

One paper per participant
The Congress Committee will schedule only one paper per participant, with the exception of
plenary lecturers and those giving papers in the Saturday evening Pseudo Society session, who
may give two papers.

Three appearances per participant
The Congress Committee will schedule each participant as paper presenter, panelist, discussant,
workshop leader, demonstration participant, poster presenter, presider, or respondent for a max-
imum of three sessions. Organizers may organize as many sessions as the committee approves.

Eight participants per session
With the exception of readers’ theater and other performances, the Congress Committee will
schedule a maximum of eight participants in a session, a presider (or presiders) and seven others
(with allowance made for co-authored contributions).

Multiple submissions
The Congress Committee strongly discourages multiple submissions and obliges participants to
inform organizers when they submit paper proposals to more than one session. The committee
reserves the right to disallow all participation to those who breach professional courtesy by
multiple submissions.

Rejected paper proposals
Organizers of Sponsored and Special Sessions are obliged to forward unused abstracts, together
with their Participant Information Forms, to the Medieval Institute by October 1 so that the
papers can be considered for General Sessions.
THE CONGRESS: HOW IT WORKS

The academic program

The core of the Congress is the academic program, which exists in three broad types of sessions:

Sponsored Sessions are organized by learned societies, associations, or institutions. The
organizers set predetermined topics, often narrowly focused and reflecting the considered
aims and interests of the organizing group.

Special Sessions are organized by individual scholars or ad hoc groups. The organizers set
predetermined topics, which are often narrowly focused.

General Sessions are organized by the Congress Committee at the Medieval Institute. Papers
considered for inclusion in General Sessions comprise (A) those proposed directly to the
committee by the September 15 deadline and (B) paper proposals forwarded to the Medieval
Institute by organizers of Sponsored and Special Sessions who were unable to include the
papers in their sessions. Topics include all areas of medieval studies, with individual session
topics determined by the topics of abstracts submitted and accepted.

Your action

If you want to give a paper: Consult the Call for Papers and determine whether a
Sponsored or a Special Session may be hospitable to a proposal. Send a paper proposal
(a one-page abstract and a completed Participant Information Form) to the contact person
as soon as you can, but no later than September 15 OR submit your proposal directly to
the Congress Committee (The Medieval Institute, Western Michigan University, 1903
W. Michigan Avenue, Kalamazoo, MI 49008-5432; medieval-institute@wmich.edu) for
consideration for inclusion in a General Session.

If you are organizing a session or sessions: By September 15, you should have received all
paper proposals for your session(s). By October 1 you must submit the session information
either online (preferred) or to the Medieval Institute using the Session Organizer Form by
email attachment (send date) or delivery service (send date) or snail mail (postmark). Any
scheduling request must be included in this submission.

Timing, efficiency, fairness

Planning for the following year’s sessions, including the lining up of potential contributors, is
often undertaken during the Congress as participants interact and exchange ideas. The efficient
organizer generally tries to line up speakers as soon as possible. The organizer or the person
proposing a paper who waits until the last minute may be very disappointed, failing to fill a
session or to place a paper, respectively.

AUDIO-VISUAL EQUIPMENT

Audio-visual equipment for Congress sessions is requested on the Participant Information
Form at the time a paper abstract is submitted for consideration or one agrees to participate in a
panel discussion, roundtable, workshop, demonstration, or performance (on or before September
15). Late equipment requests can rarely be accommodated. The form is available on the
Congress website in two formats­, both of which make it easy to type the required information.

Data projectors. The data projectors used in Congress meeting rooms, when requested, have
VGA connections and XGA (1024 x 768 pixels) resolution. We encourage you to test your
laptop using a projector with these specifications before coming to the Congress. If a data projec-
tor is requested, a screen will be provided.

Most Mac users will need to bring an adaptor for the VGA connection. All laptop users will need
to bring power cords. Most of those coming from outside North America will need a plug
adaptor (although probably not a converter, since most laptops are designed to work with a wide
range of voltage and frequency). Electrical current in the United States is 120 volts/60 Hz.

Please note that computers are not provided for Congress presentations. Speakers who wish to
make presentations involving a computer are expected to bring their own laptops or to arrange
with the session’s organizer or another colleague for the use of a computer.

Internet access. Access to the internet during the Congress, including in meeting rooms, is
through WMU’s wireless network. Those planning to use the internet during their presentations
will need to establish a User ID in WMU’s wireless system in advance of the session by follow-
ing the instructions contained in their Congress registration packets.

Other equipment. Slide projectors (35 mm), overhead projectors, DVD players, VHS players,
audio CD and cassette players, and whiteboards are also available.

                           CATERING ON CAMPUS

Catered events on the WMU campus during the Congress can be arranged by completing the
Meeting/Reception Reservation Form, which is available on the Congress website
beginning in July. The deadline is October 1.

Food and beverages (including, but not limited to, alcoholic beverages) consumed at Congress
events on the WMU campus must be provided by WMU Catering, Fetzer Center Catering, or the
Medieval Institute. Food and beverages purchased from outside vendors may not be brought into
Congress meeting rooms in the Goldsworth Valley dormitories, the Bernhard Center, or the
Fetzer Center at any time. Should food or drink purchased outside of the Fetzer Center be
brought into the Fetzer Center, it will be confiscated and left at the front desk for pick up upon
departure from the building.
TRAVEL AWARDS

Gründler Travel Award
The Gründler Travel Award is available to participants in Sponsored and Special Sessions at the
International Congress on Medieval Studies. Preference is given to Congress participants from
Central European nations. Scholars from any field are eligible, with some preference towards

ineligible for another award until the fourth year after a successful application. There will be one
award of $500, which will be presented at the Congress, plus waiver of registration and room and

ica, Asia, and Africa. Scholars presenting papers in Sponsored or Special Sessions from any field
are eligible, with some preference towards emerging scholars. Those writing doctoral disserta-
tions are also eligible. Award recipients are ineligible for another award until the fourth year after
a successful application. There will be three awards: one award of $500, which will be presented
at the Congress, plus waiver of registration and room and board fees, and two awards that waive
registration and room and board fees.

Tashjian Travel Awards
The Richard Rawlinson Center offers the David R. Tashjian Travel Awards to participants giving
papers on topics in Anglo-Saxon studies in Sponsored and Special Sessions. Eligibility is limited
to scholars from outside North America, with preference towards emerging scholars not more
than three years beyond their doctoral degree. Doctoral candidates writing their dissertations are
also eligible. Award recipients are ineligible for another award until the fourth year after a suc-
cessful application. There will be two awards: one award of $500, which will be presented at the
Congress, plus waiver of registration and room and board fees, and one award that waives regis-
tration and room and board fees.

The deadline for travel award applications is November 1 (receipt deadline). Applicants must
submit the following:

  •   a one-page abstract of the paper to be presented at the following May Congress

THE OTTO GRÜNDLER BOOK PRIZE

Western Michigan University announces the seventeenth Otto Gründler Book Prize to be
awarded in May 2013 at the 48th International Congress on Medieval Studies. It consists of an
award of $1,000.00 to the author of a book or monograph in any area of medieval studies that is
judged by the selection committee to be an outstanding contribution to its field.

The Prize was instituted by Dr. Diether H. Haenicke, then President of Western Michigan
University, to honor Professor Gründler for his distinguished service to Western and his lifelong
dedication to the international community of medievalists, and the first award was made in 1997.

Eligibility

Authors from any country are eligible. The book or monograph may be in any of the standard
scholarly languages. To be eligible for the 2013 prize the book or monograph must have been
published in 2011.

Nominations

Readers or publishers may nominate books. Letters of nomination, 2–4 pages in length, should
include sufficient detail and rationale so as to assist the committee in its deliberations. Supporting
materials should make the case for the award. Readers’ reports, if appropriate, and other letters
attesting to the significance of the work would be helpful.

Submission

Send letters of nomination and any supporting material by November 1, 2012, to:

       Secretary, Gründler Prize Committee
       The Medieval Institute
       Western Michigan University
