Event Time and Date
The annual Medieval Studies Colloquium will be comprised of 2 panels of original research by UW-Madison undergradate and graduate students, a lunchtime workshop discussion, and a keynote lecture. The Colloquium offers an opportunity for graduate students to present research in progress, often as preparation for professional conference presentations. This year Karl Steel, an Associate Professor in the Department of English at Brooklyn College in the City University of New York system, will speak on his latest work on muteness in the Middle Ages. The title of his talk is Medieval Muteness: Animals, Disability, and Objects. Professor Steel will also take part in a lunchtime workshop with students and faculty. The day will conclude with a reception as an opportunity for continued discussion and networking. The day-long event epitomizes our organization's goals to foster a community among those who study the Middle Ages at UW-Madison and to provide opportunities for professional development.
