Students and Faculty Present at Purdue Medieval Studies Conference
Two graduate students from Western presented papers at the 6th Annual Conference for Medieval Studies on Authority, Authorship, and Audience in the Middle Ages hosted by members of Comitatus, a medieval studies group at Purdue University. Jill Hebert spoke on “Authority on Ambiguity: Morgan le Fay as Author,” and Arthur J. Russell spoke on “Learning to Read Again: Sir Cleges and the Quest for Orthodox Readers.” Eve Salisbury’s “Anonymity, Attribution, and the Nearly Known: Medieval Authorship Revisited” provided the plenary address. Lisa Horton, Greg Laing, and Shannon Spratto also attended.
