UT to Host Medieval Academy Meeting April 4-6

 

The history and culture of the medieval world will be the focus of the Medieval Academy of America’s annual meeting April 4-6, hosted by UT’s Marco Institute of Medieval and Renaissance Studies.

“It’s a tremendous honor to host the MAA’s annual meeting, which brings together top medieval scholars from around the world,” said Heather Hirschfeld, the Riggsby director of the Marco Institute. “Hosting the MAA is a sign that our program here at Tennessee continues to grow and enable research in a crucial area of the humanities.”

Nearly sixty lectures and panels on a wide range of interdisciplinary topics will be held during the three-day meeting at the Hilton hotel in downtown Knoxville. Prizes will be awarded to the top scholarly papers submitted by graduate students.

Registration is required to attend the meeting. For more information or to register, call the Marco Institute office at 865-974-1859 or visit the Marco Institute website.
