Call for Papers

The Annual Conference of the Centre for Medieval Studies will take place 
14-15 March 2008 at the University of Toronto, and will explore the role 
and function of medieval patronage in all its forms, from patron-client 
relationships in the Late Antique Mediterranean to civic patronage 
systems in Late Medieval Europe, and from networks of economic and 
political power to structures of literary and artistic production.

The keynote speaker, Richard Firth Green, Humanities Distinguished 
Professor of English and the Director of the Center for Medieval & 
Renaissance Studies at The Ohio State University, will give a talk on 
Humphrey de Bohun and the translation of Guillaume de Palerme into English.

The organizing committee invites proposals for topics relating to 
medieval patronage in any of its forms; those proposals that cross over 
traditional disciplinary boundaries are especially welcome. Please send 
a 200-word abstract, a one page CV, contact information, as well as any 
audio-visual requirements by 15 September 2007 to the address below.

The Centre for Medieval Studies will be changing locations within the 
university over the summer, so electronic submissions are especially
