>41st International Congress on Medieval Studies
>Western Michigan University
>The study of sports has always been important in our attempts to
>understand cultures both old and new, and this is certainly true for
>explorations of the Middle Ages. Important scholarship in the last
>few decades has interrogated the sources and tried to uncover the
>role of sports in medieval society. In this vein, I welcome
>abstracts dealing with any aspect of sports in the Middle Ages.
>Topics may include, but are certainly not limited to, literary
>appropriations of sports, sources for understanding medieval sports,
>philosophy of sports, cultural history of sports, reactions against
>sports by the Church, etc.
>Please send 200-250 word abstracts either electronically (in MS Word
>format please) to [log in to unmask] or by standard mail to the
>address I've posted below by September 15th. Include with your
>abstract any requests for A-V equipment. Please know that the
>Congress Committee allows participants to read only one paper each
>year, and that papers will be held to a 20-minute time limit.
