In a teaching evaluation for a survey course, a student complained of “irreverence toward the canon,” perhaps conflating “canon” with institutional authority and “proper” knowledge, and a lack of reverence with moral laxity or heresy. But we believe “irreverence toward the canon” should be a goal of our critical teaching and scholarship, not a flaw. How can we be more irreverent toward the canon?

This series of sessions proposes to shed light upon the nexus of ambiguity surrounding the medieval child, as depicted in contemporaneous literature. We invite abstracts for papers that will explore the representation of childhood in texts of any language, genre, and period within the Middle Ages. Topic may include, but are not limited to:

This scholarship also intersects with recent work on music and sound, which raises rich sets of questions regarding human agency, material, ethics, aesthetics, embodiment, and the subject/object dichotomy, among other issues.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 30, 2019

Cultural, geographical, political, social, emotional, linguistic, and economic borders, among others, define and determine different aspects of our identities, cultures, and social lives along with literatures and arts. In a world charmed by 'globalization', interdisciplinary studies in humanities and social sciences has thrown further lights on the definitions, conceptualizations, roles and functions of borders.
