My Pennsic 39 teaching schedule

I've known this for a few weeks now, but due to a very hectic month of May, I haven't gotten around to posting it until now.

I will be teaching "Smackdown of the Teutonic Knights: The 600th Anniversary of the Battle of Grunwald" on Saturday, August 7, at 3 p.m. in AS 6 and on Wednesday, August 11, at 4 p.m., also in AS 6.

I will be teaching "Survey of Medieval Lithuania" on Sunday, August 8, at 5 p.m. in AS 11.

To my students and "fans": Mark your calendars now!

To myself: O.K., time to ramp up the research in earnest....

{Edited on May 26 to correct the date of the first session of the Grunwald class.}

I'm committed!

Yesterday was the deadline to submit Pennsic University class proposals to be listed in the "book" that Pennsic attendees get when they check in. I just squeaked in with my two proposals.

This time I signed up to take two classes -- and I will teach one of them at two separate times. Wow, I'm expanding....

The first class is titled "Smackdown of the Teutonic Knights: The 600th Anniversary of the Battle of Grunwald." (How's that for an intriguing title?) I asked to teach this one Saturday the 7th between 3 and 6 p.m. and Wednesday the 11th between noon and 3 p.m. That way, maybe some people who can't get to one session can make it to the other.

The other is simply titled "Survey of Medieval Lithuania." (Since I've taught at the previous two Pennsics, how can Lithuania still be "the biggest medieval country of which you may not have heard"?) My requested time slot is Sunday the 8th between 3 and 6 p.m.

That's all I know so far. Now here comes the fun part ... getting ready to teach TWO classes!
