The Syon Abbey Society


The co-founders – Paul Patterson (Saint Joseph’s University), Alex Da Costa (Oxford University), and myself – would like to officially announce the launch of The Syon Abbey Society with a call for papers for Kalamazoo 2011. Submit an abstract for our sponsored session, ‘Syon Abbey and Its Neighbors’ by emailing

This new society, founded in 2009, aims to promote the study of the history and literature of Syon Abbey through sponsored conference sessions and a semi-annual newsletter distributed online. Membership is free.

We are seeking members to contribute book and article reviews, notes, bibliography, and announcements for our first newsletter, to be issued in PDF form to a mailing list and on our website in Fall 2010.

To get on our mailing list and be a part of the Society, please email, or visit our website,
