Medieval Weather and the Natural Order - New Chaucer Society, Portland OR July 23-26, 2012

Paul Dutton has written that "'weather' is properly historical and stubbornly subjective, since it involves humans in time thinking about it and how it affects their lives." How were meteorological phenomena in the late Middle Ages observed, described, and interpreted? Recent work in ecocriticism has signaled the endlessly fluid and negotiable character of nature; can we reconfigure the notion of "natural phenomena" as a negotiated interaction among divine, human, and physical orders?

Emma Miller (University of Durham) & Miles Leeson (University of Portsmouth)

We are currently developing a co-edited volume of essays considering the development of Post-War Incest Fictions.
Although we are happy to consider all proposals that focus specifically on incest fictions we would particularly welcome those that relate to:

Law
Queer Theory
Poetry
Psychology
Narrative theory/philosophy
Theology

Incest fictions may be considered in the widest possible terms.

As we have a number of renowned academics involved, along with early interest from a major publisher, we require submissions of no more than 300 words, along with a brief biography, by the end of May, 2011. Please direct all enquires and submissions to both editors.

Northeast Historic Film Summer Symposium

Die Wunderkammer (German for "the wonder-room" or "the miracle chamber") was merely one incarnation of the phenomenon of the "cabinet of curiosities" that first appeared in Europe in the 16th century. The cabinet of curiosities was based in the collection of objects, specimens and artifacts that inspired curiosity and wonder, and sometimes defied the terms classification. In many ways, the Cabinet of Curiosities was a precursor to the modern museum.
