I'm trying - in a tearing hurry - to find a third speaker for a session on colonial literatures in the central middle ages. I already have Ian Short, from Birkbeck, who does Anglo-Norman stuff, and I'm thinking of pairing him with Matt Townend, from York, who does Scandinavian lang and lit in the Danelaw, but has anyone got any thoughts on a third to go with them? It should be someone pretty high-powered and working on language or literature in colonial/contact situations anywhere in Europe - although west is probably better - and between, say, 800 and 1250 or so - the extremely long C11th, if you like. :)

Also, medieval travel: anyone know of anyone doing anything interesting on it? Central middle ages for pref, although early med or high med are probably okay too.

Oops, should add, this is for the Anglo-American Conference of Historians in the first week of July, which is the week before Leeds. So far as I know there's no money to pay for transatlantic flights or anything, unfortunately, which is a bit of a bind, but if there's someone from the States who really fits the bill, then do let me know anyway.

Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
