Submissions for papers on any topic are welcome: history, literature (Latin and/or vernacular), art history, philosophy, music, medicine etc.

The colloquium will be sponsored jointly by the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School of the Universität zu Köln and the Centre for Medieval Studies of the University of Toronto and it will take place in Cologne on November 14-16, 2013. Its aim is to promote discussion and exchange among graduate students and faculty from both institutions. Costs for travel and accommodation will be covered.

Cologne was among the most important German cities of the Middle Ages and still boasts twelve Romanesque churches and many other buildings from the later Middle Ages. It is home to the biggest medieval urban archive north of the Alps and several other important archives and libraries (e.g. the library of the archdiocese). With over 40,000 students the University of Cologne is one of the biggest German universities.

Please submit abstracts by May 24th to Professor Martin Pickavé (
