Voyages of Discovery :: EK Event Announcement

Event Details from the EK Web Site

The Barony of Carolingia presents ‘Voyages of Discovery: An Arts & Science Colloquium’ – a demonstration of our best research into the Middle Ages. This is an day to talk about your process, your surprising discoveries, your successes and even more importantly your fruitful and instructive failures. There is no competition and no judging – the day is designed around pure knowledge transfer.

The format of the day is as follows:

– Lecture-style presentations with a question-and-answer session at the end; presentation slots are one half-hour, with fifteen minutes of presentation and ten minutes of question-and-answer. Those presenters who are comfortable with a longer presentation are welcome to request two adjoining slots, for a forty-minute presentation and fifteen minutes of question-and-answer. There are a finite number of slots, and they will be filled in the order that proposals are received. Please send any and all proposals to molly.eskridge@gmail.com.

– A poster session. This will be a hall set up to display poster-size presentations of research topics (either hanging or free-standing trifolds). There will be an hour during the day while the posters are attended by their authors; the room will be open throughout the day for interested folks to walk through and read at their leisure. There is no limit on the number of poster slots. Please send any and all poster proposals to molly.eskridge@gmail.com.

– A reference consulting table and reference book petting zoo. Trying to figure out how to frame your research question? Not sure where to look for a particular piece of information? Just wondering what the heck is “Boolean”, anyway? Stop by and ask our reference consultant; internet searching will be available, and there will be various reference books to consult. Please feel free to bring your own cool reference books to share; there will be someone minding them all day. If you are interested in serving as a reference consultant, please write to molly.eskridge@gmail.com.

– Breakout rooms and lounge space for kibitzing and further exploration of topics that caught your interest during one presentation or another.

Because we will be presenting our research with all the modern tools of the presenter’s art, this demo is entirely in modern dress. The interested general public is encouraged to attend.
