Here is the tentative schedule for the spring meetings of the GW Medieval and Early Modern Seminar (or GW MEMS, as we like to call it). The seminar is open to anyone who is interested in attending. Anyone not on our email list who would like to be may contact the seminar’s rapporteur, Lowell Duckert < firstname.lastname@example.org>.
All meetings take place in the conference room of the GW English Department (801 22nd St NW, Rome Hall 771). The seminar starts at 9 AM and concludes by 11. A breakfast of coffee and pastries is served. Papers circulate a week in advance. We look forward to your participation.
