Kalamazoo – Call for Papers

The ICMS Call for Papers has been issued.

As you may notice, the International Marie de France Society has a single panel for 2015: “Performances of Guigemar.” We regret that an administrative error on our part effectively eliminated two of our regular panels. We hope to return in full force for 2016.

If you are interested in presenting as part of “Performances of Guigemar,” contact the session organizer:

New website for 2014

Thanks to the generosity of David Merchant (Louisiana Tech), the International Marie de France Society has received use of the domain name www.mariedefrance.org.

Mr. Merchant is in the process of moving his site devoted to Marie de France to the following address: http://marieoffrance.wordpress.com/

We will be diligently working on the site over the summer and welcome your comments and suggestions. Contact our webmaster, Tamara Caudill, at webmaster@mariedefrance.org.
