A conference on ‘Nuns’ Literacies in Medieval Europe’ will take place at the University of Missouri-Kansas City from 5-8 June 2012. This is the second of three conferences designed to bring together specialists working on diverse geographical areas to create a dialogue about the Latin and vernacular texts nuns read, wrote and exchanged, primarily from the eighth to the mid-sixteenth centuries. To date, there has been significant research in this field but little in the way of cross-cultural study.
Full details about the Kansas City conference, as well as registration forms, are available at: http://www.nuns-literacies.org/.
Registration deadline is 2 April 2012.
The first meeting at the University of Hull was very successful and papers from that meeting will be published by Brepols in October 2012. The third conference will take place in June 2013 at the University of Antwerp. Please let me know of any interest, off-list.
