Abstract
We show that a class of spacetimes introduced by Fayyazuddin and Smith to describe intersecting M5-branes admits a generalized Kähler calibration. Equipped with this understanding, we are able to construct spacetimes corresponding to further classes of calibrated p-brane world-volume solitons. We note that these classes of spacetimes also describe the fields of p-branes wrapping certain supersymmetric cycles of Calabi-Yau manifolds.
