CFP: Texts and Context Conference, October 21-22, 2016
CALL FOR PAPERS: Texts and Contexts is an annual conference held on the campus of the Ohio State University devoted to Medieval and Renaissance manuscripts, incunables and early printed texts in Latin and the vernacular languages. The conference solicits papers particularly in the general discipline of manuscript studies, including palaeography, codicology, reception and text history. In addition to the general papers (of roughly 20 minutes), the conference also hosts the Virginia Brown Memorial Lecture, established in memory of the late Virginia Brown, who taught paleography at the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies for some 40 years. We also welcome proposals for sessions of two to three papers which might treat a more focused topic. This year's Virginia Brown Memorial Lecture will be given by Gregory Hays of the University of Virginia.
Please send abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for abstracts: August 15, 2016.
