This Lent we will meet as usual in the Board Room at the English Faculty, 9 West Road, on alternate Wednesdays for the Middle English Graduate Seminar. Papers begin promptly at 5.15, followed by drinks and questions. Biscuits will be available in the Board Room from 4.45p.m., so please bring along a mug of tea and catch up with fellow medievalists. After the paper all are welcome to join the speaker for dinner in a nearby restaurant. For any enquiries beforehand, please contact Alex da Costa (ad666).
