The program was planned by Jennifer Brown (Marymount Manhattan College), Donna Alfano Bussell (University of Illinois, Springfield), and Jocelyn Wogan-Browne (York). Maryanne Kowaleski (Fordham) and Kerri Kupec (Fordham) are responsible for conference logistics, with the aid of Jennifer Brown and Steven Kruger (Chair, English, CUNY Graduate Center) and Glenn Burger (Director, Medieval Studies Certificate Program, CUNY Graduate Center) to whom special thanks are owed. The website was designed by Paul Poppleton (Fordham) and the conference flyer by Christina Stith (Fordham) and Scotty Ellis (Fordham).

We are very grateful for the financial support provided by the Department of English and Certificate Program in Medieval Studies at CUNY Graduate Center, the Center for Medieval Studies at Fordham University, and Margot Duley, the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Illinois, Springfield.

The Memorial Service for Prof. Jo Ann McNamara is sponsored by the PhD program in History at CUNY Graduate Center, the Medieval Studies Certificate Program, and the Office of the President at CUNY, who are also co-sponsors of the Closing Reception with the Barking Abbey conference and the Center for Medieval Studies at Fordham University.
