Call for Papers for the 42nd Internatio...
Medieval Studies - 10-13 May, 2007
“The Great Flood Came, and Destroyed All”?
Walter Goffart’s Barbarian Tides: The Migration Age
and the Later Roman Empire
Sponsored by The Early Medieval Forum and The
University of Pennsylvania Press
We invite submissions of abstracts for this session,
with the aim of bringing together established scholars
and current students working on Late Antiquity and the
Early Middle Ages, for a critical look at Walter
Goffart's most recent publication, "Barbarian Tides:
The Migration Age and the Later Roman Empire".
Goffart's past works have revolutionized this period
of study, and his new work presents an opportunity to
critically discuss his ideas, evidence, and scholarly
impact. More information about the session can be
found at this website:
Please feel free to contact me with any comments or
questions you may have. Thank you,
