Texas Medieval Association Annual Conference

Texas Tech University will host the 28thannual conference of the Texas Medieval Association, late Thursday through Saturday, on the last week end of October in 2018.  The preliminary conference schedule is as follows:

Thursday events will include an afternoon public symposium related to "The Study of the Bible in the Pre-Modern World: Celebrating the 500thAnniversary of theComplutensian Polyglot Bible,an exhibit of original manuscripts and facsimiles displayed at the Museum of Texas Tech University.  Frans and Kate Van Liere, from Calvin College, will speak on the medieval study of the Bible and on the Spanish Renaissance context of the Complutensian Polyglot Bible.  That Bible project is dear to Texas Tech because it was an initiative based at Alcalá de Henares, the architectural model for TTU's Spanish revival campus.  The Bible Exhibit Symposium will be followed by a reception and a concert of medieval Spanish music.  

Friday events, centered at the Museum of Texas Tech University, will include multiple interdisciplinary sessions on things medieval and Renaissance, a plenary address by Professor Timothy Graham, director of the University of New Mexico Institute for Medieval Studies and winner of the Medieval Academy's 2016 excellence in teaching award.  

Saturday's events will be held in the TTU central campus.  There will be more research presentations and panels, a plenary address by George Greenia, Emeritus professor of Spanish at William and Mary, on "The Camino de Santiago and Medieval Pilgrim Libraries," and a TEMA Business luncheon and presidential address.  The close of the formal conference  at 5:00pm will be followed by a final reception.

Scholars with proposals for sessions and for papers should email  John.Howe@ttu.eduortexasmedieval@gmail.com.  While the conference is particularly celebrating aspects of the Spanish Renaissance,  the organizers welcome ideas for presentations or sessions on all aspects of medieval and renaissance studies. Information on registration will be available at the TEMA website.
