Travel and Exploration

Andy Beresford and I are organizing sessions for the 2010 International Medieval Conference in Leeds (July 12-15, 2010).  The theme of the congress is «Travel and Exploration.»  In hopes of getting more Hispanists involved in Leeds we would welcome abstracts on journeys literal and metaphorical / religious and secular and the interplay between the two. Paper proposal smust be submitted to the congress organizaers by 31 August 2009 and Sessions by 30 September 2009.  We would like to arrange two to three sessions on this topic.  There is a possibility for publication of articles based on these sessions by CRMS in Durham.  Please send abstracts to me at or to Andy at
