CFP: Weblogs and the Academy: The Scope of the Professional and Boundaries of the Personal in Open, Pseudo-Anonymous, and Anonymous Blogging
International Medieval Congress at Kalamazoo, Michigan, May 7-10, 2009

Elisabeth Carnell and I are organizing next year's installation of the "Weblogs and the Academy" series for Kalamazo in 2009. Would you be interested in giving a paper on personal/professional boundaries; the Tribble effect; open, pseudo-anonymous, and anonymous academic blogging; or any other related topic as it relates, in some way, to Medieval Studies?

Last year's session ended with a passionate discussion on this very subject, far more material than could be fit into question time, so it's high time that it had a session of its own. Contact me about it, or the official pointwoman, Elisabeth. Her details are listed on the last page of the official K'zoo CFP. (PDF)

All paper abstracts must be received no later than September 15th, along with cover pages detailing contact information and equipment requirements.
