Hartwick Students to Present Research at Medieval Conference

November 27, 2012

Hartwick College Students Kayleigh Paster '13 and Elizabeth Greco '14 will present papers at Moravian College's 7th Undergraduate Conference in Medieval and Early Modern Studies this Saturday, December 1, 2012.

At the conference, students will deliver papers and presentations in the fields of art history, English, history, music, philosophy, religion, and other disciplines dealing with the medieval and early modern eras.

During the event, Paster will present her research titled: "Women Saints and Martyrs: Understanding the Portrayal of Women in Anglo-Saxon Hagiography" while Greco will present her paper, called: "Rape Cannot be Erased: Chaucer's Motives behind Writing the 'Reeve's Tale'."

According to Moravian's website, "the day-long conference is one of the nation's few undergraduate conferences focused on the humanities and was the first to feature medieval and early modern studies. Student participation has remained consistently strong, and continues to grow, since [Moravian faculty] initiated the event in 2006."
