Every semester, the Medieval Studies Student Association features the finest scholarship from its many undergraduate and graduate members in a conference-like setting, complete with opportunities for others to ask questions and provide vital feedback. We are often joined by members of the Institute for Medieval Studies faculty, who also help presenters improve their work for the purposes of future presentations and, eventually, even publication. The Colloquium will be held on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 in SUB Cherry/Silver, with times dependent on the schedules of those involved. The deadline for abstract submissions is October 22, 2014. Please check back after October 25 for specific scheduling details.
Join us on Wednesday, October 29th (almost Halloween!) for a presentation of the 1963 film El Naser Salah el Dine, or Saladin the Victorious (which actually has absolutely nothing to do with Halloween at all). Released in 1963, the film was funded in part by the Egyptian government and is still seen as an important landmark in Egyptian cinema. Check out the IMDb entry here.
Also of note is the fact that getting a playable copy with English subtitles took the MSSA over five months; come see this film because who knows when you'll have another chance? This film is presented in partnership with Dr. Sarah Davis-Secord's Medieval Crusade and Jihad course. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP so we can buy enough food!
