April 8, 2008
KALAMAZOO--Kalamazoo County residents and members of the Western Michigan University community may attend the 43rd International Congress on Medieval Studies for free if they register online by April 15.
WMU's Medieval Congress is one of the world's largest annual gatherings of people interested in the Middle Ages. This year's event will take place Thursday through Sunday, May 8-11.
The 2008 congress will include more than 600 sessions featuring scholarly papers, panel discussions, roundtables, workshops and performances. The exhibits hall will be filled with nearly 70 publishers, used book dealers, purveyors of medieval sundries and other vendors.
County residents and WMU community members who do not take advantage of the free online registration may register after April 15, but will be assessed a $50 late fee.
