Until July 31st, the Margery Kempe Society is open for submissions for blogposts from graduate students / early career researchers and from all teachers of Kempe and her Book!
Co-founded by myself and my partner-in-crime Laura Kalas, the Margery Kempe Society is a fully-inclusive space to support, and to promote, the scholarship, study, and teaching of The Book of Margery Kempe.
Check out our Call for Submissions here (and a huge thank you to Emily Harless who is co-ordinating the blogpost drive!)
In other Team Margery news, this week Laura and I were interviewed by the brilliant AJ Langley for a forthcoming episode of her podcast My Favourite Mystic. It was great to talk about the origins of our own interests in mysticism and in Margery, and to have the opportunity to talk about our forthcoming volume, Encountering The Book of Margery Kempe.
(On the subject of which: until 18th July, Manchester University have a sale on! Use the code SUMMER50 and you can get 50% off the forthcoming volume- it’s a bargain for £42.50!)
I’ll post here when our podcast episode is released but it will be in November, to coincide with the publication month for Encountering!
We’re very grateful to AJ for having us on the show. If you’d like to check out the previous episodes, including one with Team Margery’s Einat Klafter, check out this link: My Favourite Mystic.
