We invite you to contribute to the Seventh Annual Fu Jen Medieval
Conference, entitled 'The Human Person and Nature in Medieval Literature',
which will take place in April of 2006 (dates to be finalised). The

creation and God. We are especially interested in papers that cross
disciplinary boundaries. Some areas that papers might address are:

· Unity and diversity in nature

· Nature as text and sign

· Nature and gender
