Nuns’ Literacies in Medieval Europe Conference – June 5-8, 2012

An international and interdisciplinary conference on “Nuns’ Literacies in Medieval Europe” will take place on the UMKC campus June 5-8, 2012.  Registration deadline is April 2.

This is the second of three conferences designed to bring together specialists working on diverse geographical areas to create a dialogue about the Latin and vernacular texts nuns read, wrote, and exchanged, primarily from the eighth to the mid-sixteenth centuries.  To date, there has been significant research in this field, but little in the way of cross-cultural study.  Full details about the conference are available at

Dr. Virginia Blanton, UMKC,
