Illinois Medieval Association Conference: Feb. 26-27 2016 [UPDATE]

Wednesday, November 18, 2015 - 2:02pm
Illinois Medieval Association

Below is the original call for papers. We have an exciting collection of proposals and are looking forward to a tremendous conference. Yet, we wish to extend the proposal deadline in order to broaden our scope. We have several undergraduate papers that are very worthy and we would like to create at least one more undergraduate panel. Furthermore, we will accept proposals beyond the defined concept of "Medievalism." The new deadline is December 5th and all contact information is also below.

"The wonder opened up elsewhere. The things we don't do."

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth"

"Thanks to consciousness, am I not at all times elsewhere from where I am, always master of the other and capable of something else?"

The Wellcome Trust-funded Science Fiction and the Medical Humanities project invites abstracts for its concluding conference. Science fiction is a fertile ground for the imagining of biomedical advances: technologies such as cloning, prosthetics, and rejuvenation are frequently encountered in science-fiction storytelling. Science fiction also offers alternative ideals of health and wellbeing, and imagines new forms of disease and suffering.
