'Call for Papers: Special Sessions in Honour of Ann Dooley and David Klausner
Studies Association of North America Annual Meeting
of Toronto, jointly hosted by the Centre for Medieval Studies, St.
Michael's College and Trinity College
honour of the distinguished and influential careers of Toronto
Celticists Ann Dooley and David Klausner, we are inviting abstracts
for two special sessions at CSANA 2013. In consideration of the
broad-ranging nature of their work, specific themes have not been
assigned for the sessions; however, the intention is that the themes
of the papers should intersect in some way with the research of
either Ann Dooley or David Klausner. Papers that connect the
honourees’ work – such as Ann Dooley’s translation of the
Acallam na Senórach or
David Klausner’s research on drama and performance in medieval
Wales – to current trends and developments in the field of Celtic
Studies are particularly welcome. Although it is by no means a
requirement, former students of Ann Dooley and David Klausner are
especially encouraged to apply. Abstracts that are not selected will
be forwarded to the general CSANA Call for Papers.
submit a 200-300 word abstract via email by 15 December 2012 to Giselle Gos ... and Kristen Mills'.
