    Dr. Hannah Kirby Wood's dissertation, "Intersections of Voluntary and Involuntary Poverty: The Friars and the Lay Indigent in Late Medieval England, 1221-c. 1430" (University of Toronto, 2021), was awarded an honourable mention for the CSM's Leonard Boyle Prize for best dissertation in Medieval Studies for 2022.

    Dr. Wood’s dissertation addresses an important topic in a wonderful, interesting and wide-ranging way. Thanks to her, the development of voluntary poverty at the end of the Middle Ages must now be considered through the opposed prism of impoverishment of a part of society, social, theological and cultural History in a same spectrum of analysis.

    Congratulations to Dr. Wood!

    La thèse de Hannah Kirby Wood, "Intersections of Voluntary and Involuntary Poverty : The Friars and the Lay Indigent in Late Medieval England, 1221-c. 1430" (University of Toronto, 2021), a reçu une mention honorable pour le Prix Leonard Boyle du CSM pour la meilleure dissertation en études médiévales pour 2022.

    La dissertation de Mme Wood aborde un sujet important d'une manière merveilleuse, intéressante et de grande envergure. Grâce à elle, le développement de la pauvreté volontaire à la fin du Moyen Âge doit désormais être considéré à travers le prisme opposé de l'appauvrissement d'une partie de la société, de l'histoire sociale, théologique et culturelle dans un même spectre d'analyse.

    Félicitations à Dr Wood !

    Stephanie Lahey has been awarded the Leonard Boyle Dissertation Prize for 2022 for her dissertation "Offcut Zone Parchment in Manuscript Codices from Later Medieval England" (University of Victoria, 2021).

    Victoria, University of Victoria, McPherson Library, Special Collections and University Archives, Doc.Brown.2Not only is Stephanie Lahey’s dissertation a very important and ambitious piece of scholarship – in the noblest sense of the word – but it is also vividly written, cohesive and powerfully imaginative. Its range of applications is thorough and will impact medieval sciences in the years to come and most probably encourage more research on the materiality of written knowledge. The committee members fully agree with the opinion of the external examiner that the dissertation is ready to go to print and should be published as soon as possible. If Dr. Lahey is interested in an academic position, it will no doubt be the beginning of a tremendous career.

    Congratulations to Dr. Lahey!

    Stephanie Lahey a reçu le prix Leonard Boyle pour 2022 pour sa dissertation "Offcut Zone Parchment in Manuscript Codices from Later Medieval England" (University of Victoria, 2021).

    Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Hatton 111, f. 235rLa thèse de Stephanie Lahey est non seulement un travail d'érudition très important et ambitieux - dans le sens le plus noble du terme - mais elle est également rédigée de manière vivante, cohérente et puissamment imaginative. Son éventail d'applications est complet et aura un impact sur les sciences médiévales dans les années à venir et encouragera très probablement d'autres recherches sur la matérialité du savoir écrit. Les membres du comité partagent entièrement l'avis de l'examinateur externe selon lequel la thèse est prête à être imprimée et devrait être publiée dès que possible. Si le Dr Lahey est intéressée par un poste universitaire, ce sera sans aucun doute le début d'une formidable carrière.

    Félicitations à Dr Lahey !

    The 2022 Margaret Wade Labarge Prize for best book in Medieval Studies was awarded to Kathryn Kerby-Fulton for her book The Clerical Proletariat and the Resurgence of Medieval English Poetry (Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 2021). 

    Photo of Kathryn Kerby-Fulton

    In a masterful, paradigm-shifting study, Kathryn Kerby-Fulton delivers new insights about the importance to late medieval English poetry of the "invisible" medieval clerics in minor orders without benefices or established positions, the adjuncts of their time. This "clerical proletariat" lived and worked between the ecclesiastical and lay worlds. Underemployed and overeducated, their reaction to precarious working conditions and adversity exerted a transformational influence on medieval English literature and helped re-establish English as the dominant language of literary expression. In a field where so much has already been written, Kerby-Fulton refreshingly reorients the approach to lesser-known poets through this stellar example of historical literary criticism.

    Congratulations to Dr. Kerby-Fulton! The committee thanks all the authors who submitted books for consideration. They provided the committee with ample and interesting reading, and their work is testimony to the excellent contributions of Canadians to research fields of the Middle Ages.

    Le prix Margaret Wade Labarge 2022 du meilleur livre en études médiévales a été attribué à Kathryn Kerby-Fulton pour son livre The Clerical Proletariat and the Resurgence of Medieval English Poetry (Philadelphie : University of Pennsylvania Press, 2021). Dans une étude magistrale, qui change de paradigme, Kathryn Kerby-Fulton offre de nouvelles perspectives sur l'importance pour la poésie anglaise de la fin du Moyen Âge des clercs médiévaux "invisibles" des ordres mineurs sans bénéfices ni positions établies, les adjuvants de leur temps. Ce "prolétariat clérical" vivait et travaillait entre le monde ecclésiastique et le monde laïc. Sous-employés et suréduqués, leur réaction aux conditions de travail précaires et à l'adversité a exercé une influence transformatrice sur la littérature anglaise médiévale et a contribué à rétablir l'anglais comme langue d'expression littéraire dominante. Dans un domaine où tant de choses ont déjà été écrites, Kerby-Fulton réoriente de façon rafraîchissante l'approche des poètes moins connus grâce à cet excellent exemple de critique littéraire historique.

    Félicitations à Mme Kerby-Fulton ! Le comité remercie tous les auteurs qui ont soumis des livres pour examen. Ils ont fourni au comité une lecture abondante et intéressante, et leur travail témoigne de l'excellente contribution des Canadiens aux domaines de recherche du Moyen Âge.

    Pfaff @ 50 (+2...): Celebrating 50 years of New Liturgical Feasts—1 & 2 July 2022: online registration is free!

    In 1970, Richard W. Pfaff’s New Liturgical Feasts in Later Medieval England fundamentally changed the way humanities scholars thought and wrote about English religious development in the long fifteenth century. ‘Pfaff at Fifty’ aims to take stock of the enduring legacy of New Liturgical Feasts by reconsidering the important questions that this touchstone book raised. (Of course, the conference was to have been held in July 2020 to mark the 50th anniversary of Dr Pfaff's touchstone work. Obviously, something came up.)

    All information can be found at: https://pfaff50.wordpress.com/

     

    Registration is currently open for in-person attendance (the expense covers the costs for refreshments, lunches, a reception, and the conference dinner; no real registration fee, per se); online attendance--likely the preference for most U of T and PIMS folks--is gratis, and the links for the two days of (MS Teams) seminars will be posted to the site ASAP.

    The conference also features the 2022 Medium Aevum Annual Lecture, which this year will be delivered by Dr Ryan Perry (Kent). The lecture is titled ‘Middle English Books of Devotion and Liturgical Privatisation in Fifteenth-century England’. More info is available here. And folks can register directly for the livestream here.

    For anyone who works on liturgy in England or liturgy in the later Middle Ages, Richard Pfaff's work is integral. Our conference is meant to pay a small tribute to his immense contribution to our many fields. We would be honoured if you could join us.

    Stay well,

    K.S. Whetter for Ben Barootes and Rob Lutton
