Due to the storm and its aftermath, we will be canceling the panel on Late Medieval Devotion scheduled for this Friday, November 2. I am trying to reschedule the event for Friday, May 3. I will keep everyone posted! The next talk is Martha Rust on Friday, December 7, at 7:30 at the Graduate Center.

I hope all the MCNY community is ok. We will keep you updated about Friday's event, but it largely depends on whether subways are running, power is restored to the Grad Center, and whether our speakers can get in... If it needs to be canceled, I will let you know!
