CSM President’s note

Hello Canadian Medievalists,

Well, Labour Day is upon us and the fluster and flurry of a new teaching term has arrived. You will all have received Scrinium in your email boxes, so if you weren’t at Congress, you will know that I am the new CSM President (joined by Dominic Marner as Past President, Marc Cels as Vice President, Meredith Bacola as the indispensable Secretary/Treasurer ... as well as the even-more-indispensable Andrew Klein as webmaster, Christa Canitz and Sebastien Rossignol as Florilegium editors, Brandon Alakas, Kristin Bourassa, and Stephanie Lahey as social media co-ordinators, and various members of the Board and prize chairs). I am only realizing as I type what a great, and extensive, team of people there are in the CSM. Many thanks go to the people stepping down, especially to David Watt as Past President.

First, an apology – I’m sorry I couldn’t make it to Congress this year. This is what I was doing instead:

(Rievaulx Abbey)

I hope you all had a good summer and are ready for the fall. Send me information about your research and projects you’re involved in. We know that Canadian Medievalists are doing exciting things, but Canadians are a modest bunch, and too often we only find out what other medievalists are doing by accident. Send photos we can post too.

Have a great back-to-school season!

Veuillez m’excuser pour écrire en Anglais seulement.

    Please don't leave us in suspense: what were you doing at Rievaulx??

      I was on a year's sabbatical in Durham ... so we got to visit lots of ruins, including Rievaulx. My kids thoroughly enjoyed clambering around!
