CFP: The National Endowment for the Humanities is sponsoring two sessions at 44th International Congress on Medieval Studies. The first is "Teaching and Researching the Middle Ages at Minority-Serving Colleges and Universities" and the second is a workshop on grant opportunities through NEH.
The roundtable will facilitate the exchange of ideas on teaching in all areas of the Middle Ages; report on programs facing challenges and/or successes; share ways to engage undergraduate and graduate students in our field; offer advice for sustaining or expanding the medieval curriculum; and discuss ways to increase scholarly research on minority-serving campuses, among other topics of interest to participants. Because this is a roundtable, participants may present a paper in another session. Speakers will likely have no more than 5-7 minutes each, depending on the level of interest.
Please send a very brief abstract of approximately 100-150 words to James M. Palmer at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 15, 2008. Along with a title for the presentation, please send a completed Participant Information Form, which can be found at:
