What's Kzoo?


Kzoo, or more properly K'zoo, is Kalamazoo, Michigan, the home
of Western Michigan University.

That university annually hosts the "International Congress
on Medieval Studies", which is the largest gathering of
medievalists in the world. It typically runs for 3 1/2 days.

This year is the 41st Congress. It runs from May 4 to May 7,
and will likely have over 600 sessions and 2500 or so attendees.

While most present are professionals, interested amateurs are
also welcome and present in some numbers. One can read more
about it at:

Some photos taken at previous Congresses can be found at:
