Kalamazoo

I am not at Kalamazoo this week, although many other throngs of medievalists are. At least I don't have to choose between c. 60 competing sessions per time block for the next four days? The downside is that I'm missing the K'zoo reunion.

If you are at Kalamazoo, however, you might be interested in this 10 am Saturday session:

Me too! I am going to Leeds in July, but it's not as much of a social event for me usually.
