Snowbanks could not daunt us, nor blizzards deter us from our way! Installment Part Deux of the Second Annual Medievalists @ Penn Graduate Student Conference returns -- refomulated and reconfigured into a roundtable Q&A and discussion of pre-circulated papers from five of the conference panelists unable to present their work earlier.

Please join us on Friday, October 1st, in the English Grad Lounge from 1:30 - 4:30 pm. A light lunch will be served. Links to the pre-circulated papers may be found below.

We hope to see you there to kick off M@P's fourth year!
