Ohio Medieval Colloquium



Ohio Medieval Colloquium.

The Ohio Medieval Colloquium is an informal association of medievalists from throughout the state, co-founded by Kristen Figg and John B. Friedman. There are, as Prof. Friedman likes to say, no dues and no constitution. Even the membership is virtual, consisting of an e-mail list passed from one chair to the next. If you would like to join, all you have to do is send your e-mail address one of our current co-chairs:

Mark Bocija, Columbus State Community College: mbocija@cscc.edu

Tim Davis, Columbus State Community College: tdavis@cscc.edu

Gabrielle Parkin, Case Western Reserve University, glp24@case.edu

The Colloquium holds two one-day meetings per year; the Spring Meeting is traditionally held in the Columbus area and the Fall Meeting somewhere on the periphery of the state (to view previous programs click 'past meetings' at the top of the page). Meetings generally begin in late morning and end in the late afternoon to enable those with a long drive ahead of them to get home; those who can stay later are welcome to gather for a congenial dinner at a local restaurant. Calls for papers generally go out some six weeks or so before each meeting and papers on any aspect of medieval history or culture are welcome.
