It's Almost Fall Already

I've been updating the Medieval Institute's web site with information about our fall calendar.  Go to or  to see what's new.  September 18, 23, and 25 are the dates of our annual Conway Lectures. This year's speaker is Jonathan Riley-Smith.  October 8-10 will bring the SIEPM (Société Internationale pour l'Étude de la Philosophie Médiévale) colloquium on "Philosophy and Theology in the Studia of the Religious Orders and at the Papal Court." Shortly, I'll have more details on the SIEPM conference available on our web site, so anyone who is planning to attend can get some hints about travel and local accommodations.  The MI's Kent Emery, together with Bill Courtenay at Wisconsin (Madison), have come up with a very full 3 days of programming.

Thanks to the various folks who have sent good wishes on the launch of this blog.  Your encouragement is greatly appreciated.  I'm also delighted to note that time spent at Notre Dame is being recalled with such pleasure by our visitors.  Don't be shy about posting comments on the blog site, you're very welcome to join/start a conversation.  And as radio host and raconteur Garrison Keillor says, "stay well, do good work, and keep in touch."
