Landmark Achievement: Florin Curta marks a Quarter-Century Shaping Medieval and Early Modern Studies at the Kalamazoo International Congress on Medieval Studies.
After organizing another round of successful panels this past May (click for details), Florin Curta will mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of his intensive involvement in the International Congress for Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo next year. During this quarter of a century, Professor Curta has annually organized multiple panels sponsored by UF’s Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (many in collaboration with the Research Group on Manuscript Evidence at Princeton University). These panels, focusing especially on the cultural history of eastern and central Europe and drawing on the insights of archaeological research, have brought together scholars from around the world.
Professor Curta plans to continue his organizational efforts in Medieval Studies the year after next at the annual International Medieval Congress in Leeds, England.
