Our annual conference is hosted by different generous members and institutions each year. The conference is generally in October, with the deadline for paper abstracts sometime in the late summer. The best way to find out about the conference is to check this website, or like us on Facebook.

SEMA Members,

With very many apologies for the delayed announcement this year, drumroll please…

Longtime SEMA-narian, Christine Kozikowski, would like to invite all of us to the University of the Bahamas for the 2018 meeting of the Southeastern Medievalists Association. The Executive Council would like to profusely thank Christine for stepping up this year. After traveling to the US for so many years, she and the other organizers are delighted to invite us to their home.

As soon as the CFP and conference website is available, we will post updates!

This year’s theme will be: Diaspora: Identity, Migration, and Return
The conference dates are: November 8-10, 2018

The organizers and the Executive Council would like you all to know that we are keenly aware that holding our annual meeting in the Bahamas will mean that SEMA has been held at two relatively expensive places two years in a row. Some of you will have concerns about international travel as well. As with any SEMA location, some members may not be able to attend. However, we all want you to know that we are working together to keep costs down *as much* as possible, and hope that most of us will be able to accept Christine’s invitation. Looking ahead, 2019’s location and costs will be more modest.

Looking forward to seeing you in the Bahamas in November!

Mary Valante

President of SEMA (Southeastern Medievalists Association)
