Last week’s conference included a fine slate of papers as well as good company and wonderful weather. We can’t thank our panel organizers, paper presenters and session presiders enough for their work!
Now it’s time to plan for 2018 CCMS! As you may remember, some of the CCMS panels are also ICMS panels, so our submission schedule closely adheres to the schedule for the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University.
May 26, 2017 (Friday) by noon – Panel Recommendations to firstname.lastname@example.org so the Conference Steering committee (Marvin Döbler, Hugh Feiss, Anne Lester, Stefano Mula) can prepare submissions.
Recommendations should include: Title, name and contact information for the person organizing the panel, one-page (250-400 words) intellectual justification for the session (significance, why now?, potential participants can also be included). Only the organizer must be committed to the session at this time.
September 15 –Deadline for paper submissions to panel organizers from ICMS call for papers or for CCMS sessions from blog, deadline for paper abstracts to CCMS portion of the conference to email@example.com for consideration by the steering committee.
The submissions for CCMS are approved by the CCMS conference steering committee, so the deadlines are slightly different than those for the International Congress on Medieval Studies. Additionally, CCMS welcomes proposals on any facet of monasticism in any historical period, not only the middle ages.
