41st Annual Medieval and Renaissance Forum on April 17-18, 2020 is CANCELLED
It is with heavy heart that we must announce the cancellation of the 41st Annual Medieval and Renaissance Forum, scheduled to take place at Keene State College on April 17 and 18, 2020.
Over the course of the past week, we have followed closely the development of the COVID-19 crisis in New England and at Keene State College specifically.
Yesterday, Dr. Melinda Treadwell, the President of Keene State College announced that all courses were moving online from March 23rd to April 6th with the possibility of the campus remaining closed for the remainder of the spring semester. Not knowing whether the campus will be open on April 17-18 and, more importantly, not wanting our participants and their families to be at any risk, we believe it to be the safer course to cancel our gathering.
Please let us know if you need any documentation regarding the acceptance of your paper for promotion or tenure materials, etc. We would be happy to write a letter stating that you were accepted to present at the Forum but were unable to do so due to the current health crisis.
Please also let us know if your e-mail address changes as we hope to be in contact with you again soon (by August 1st at the latest) to inform you of the next Forum’s dates.
We will truly miss seeing our old friends and meeting new colleagues and students. We hope to meet again soon. All our best wishes,
Meriem Pagès and Robert G. Sullivan
