Kalamazoo 2011

Our first official Kalamazoo session is tomorrow, Thursday, May 12, at 1:30pm! Come out and hear our speakers! Brenda Carr will be talking about the continuance (or re-emergence?) of medieval devils on the Elizabethan stage; Anna Clarke will be talking about the Old English Soul and Body and what it tells us about conceptions of the afterlife; and Asa Mittman (President of MEARCSTAPA) will be presenting on the angelic fall in the Junius manuscript. It looks to be an interesting session, and we look forward to seeing you there!
