MAMO: Rome

RavenKingPainting

Good news! Just got word that my presentation ‘A Chieftain Unchosen: Examining the Raven King through Medieval Prophecy’ has been approved for MAMO: The Middle Ages in the Modern World conference, which will take place in Rome in November. Yay! One of my ulterior motives for saying no to other things is to make sure I can afford to go to this one as I hope to see not only the fabulous Alessandra Bava but also pal Dan Curley (and ROME!).

Yes! This is another paper on Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. Yes! I am trying to finish up another essay on the novel this very day (or maybe tomorrow — always take another day to look at it). Yes! This pretty much seals the deal that I am actually writing a whole book about this novel. Heh. This is how things sneak up on you.

Perhaps I am just part of the prophecy, too…
