Goscelin of St. Bertin / Kalamazoo 2012

Goscelin of St. Bertin was one of the most prolific and influential hagiographers to come out of the late 11th century, and certain of his works—most notably the Liber Confortatorius—have rightfully garnered much recent scholarly attention. In addition, several of Goscelin's works, such as his hagiographic accounts of the female saints of Ely, have been given recent critical editions. Meanwhile some of his other works, such as his accounts of the early archbishops of Canterbury, are only now undergoing the process of editing and have not yet been printed in modern editions. This session welcomes papers from scholars who are working on Goscelin's more familiar texts as well as those who are working on texts which have received little previous attention.

Popular Culture Association / American Culture Association

Overview: The last half-dozen years have seen an explosion in U.S. publications addressing the intersection of religion and comics, but little has been said on the body of work taken as a whole. Outside of individual reviews, rarely are these works discussed in terms of their applications, their intertextuality, their audiences, their shortcomings, or the new questions they raise. This panel is to act as a forum addressing either portions of these works, entire books, their shared space, or the next steps to which they may all lead. In addition to the print publications recommended below, this panel also invites reflections on some of the websites and blogs conducting similar work, also listed:
