Texas State University is pleased to invite papers and sessions on the theme "Tongues" for the 29th annual conference of the Texas Medieval Association. The conference theme will emphasize the rich and various methods that medieval people and cultures interacted, but submissions from all topics in medieval studies will be considered.

Both abstracts for individual papers and sets of abstracts for full panels are welcome. We especially invite papers and sessions contributing to the 2019 conference theme: tongues and all related words that serve as a conduit for the transmission of knowledge and culture in verbal, written, oral, and visual forms. Those who wish to connect to the conference theme may seek terms in their area of interest with topics of language, communication, dialogue, expression, terminology, or thought.

Papers may be submitted in either English, French or Spanish. For presentations in French and Spanish, please specify this preference. Send title and abstract of approximately 200 words to David Navarro  or Yasmine Beale-Rivaya no later than September 1, 2019. Early submission is encouraged: rolling acceptance will begin on June 1, 2019, and space may become limited after this date. Among proposals for full sessions, those including participants from more than one institution will be given priority. A prize will be awarded for the best paper by a graduate student.
