Distinguished Colleagues,

The deadline for submission for Vagantes 2013 has been extended to November 13. Please send this message along to your graduate students! Thanks!

Vagantes is now the largest conference in North America for graduate students studying the Middle Ages. Vagantes aims to provide an open dialogue among junior scholars from all fields of medieval studies. The conference features two faculty keynote speakers, twenty-four student papers, and an audience of approximately 100 people. Vagantes emphasizes interdisciplinary scholarship; each year, presenters from backgrounds as varied as Anthropology, Archaeology, Art History, Classics, Comparative Literature, English, History, Manuscript Studies, Musicology, Philosophy, and Religious Studies come together to exchange ideas. In this manner,Vagantes fosters a sense of community for junior medievalists of diverse backgrounds, and because the conference does not have a registration fee, this community can flourish within the margins of a graduate student budget. 

Abstracts for twenty-minute papers are welcome from graduate students on all topics considering the Middle Ages. In keeping with the mission of Vagantes to advance interdisciplinary studies, we invite submissions in areas including but not limited to art history, history, literature, musicology, philosophy, and religious studies. 

Please email a brief vitae and abstract of no more than 300 words by November 9, 2012 to:
