This past spring, NYU's Medieval and Renaissance Graduate Interdisciplinary Network (or MARGIN) held its first annual Symposium on the afterlife of Ovid in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. We were delighted to present seven engaging student papers, as well as a keynote from Dr. Ana Pairet of Rutger’s University. The papers included topics as wide ranging as objectumsexuality in Pearl and the Roman de la Rose, so-called “hermaphrodite sin” in Inferno, and transgressive artists in the work of Spencer.

Travel narratives are unavoidably influenced by the changes in perspectives and new experiences that take place as bodies cross national, political, and cultural boundaries. They also situate the body, particularly the gendered body, within a larger context that ascribes bodily roles and hierarchies through the rhetoric of power and mobility.

This year's theme is "kindness."

Specific to Goddess Studies, what are some of the ways women have been portrayed as kind in religious and mythic narrative or iconography? In which ways has the personification of kindness-as-feminine been damaging to women's roles in the larger socio-political context? Does this have specific implications for narratives including LGBTQ and people of color? Are there any narratives of figures which the mainstream has adopted as malevolent, but actually have much more nuanced and complicated histories? Send your proposal to Angela Sells (omingintobeing@gmail.com.
