MAMA invites papers on all aspects of medieval literature, history, art, and culture are welcome, especially those that address the conference theme of "Encountering the Other."
The theme may be broadly construed as: encounters between East and West; encounters between different faiths/nations/cultural groups; "encounters" between post-medieval writers/scholars/film-makers with the Middle Ages; pedagogical papers on teaching the Middle Ages as Other; etc. etc.
We welcome twenty-minute papers on the conference topic, Encountering the Other, or any medieval topic. (Proposals for sessions - 3 papers, with or without a chairperson - are also welcome.)
Deadline for submission of 1-page abstracts: December 15, 2011
