Memory and Identity in High Medieval Canterbury

updated: 
Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - 1:03pm
paper session at the Leeds IMC 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

From the impact of its eleventh-century rebuilding to the spread of Thomas Becket's cult across Europe and the Near East, Canterbury was an influential cultural center in the high medieval world. In keeping with the IMC theme, this session examines the role of memory and identity at Canterbury in the 11th-13th centuries. How did Canterbury's competing spiritual communities imagine themselves fitting into England's -- and Christendom's -- past and present? What insights can the manuscripts from Canterbury's scriptoria provide into the role of texts and images in articulating overlapping religious, linguistic, and political identities? How were Canterbury's identities translated beyond the British Isles?

ICMS 2018 - Disability, Devotion, and Subjectivity in Medieval and Renaissance England

updated: 
Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - 12:55pm
José Villagrana, Bates College / Spencer Strub, UC Berkeley
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

This panel invites trans-historical and trans-disciplinary examinations of pre-modern disability studies, focusing particularly on the construction of the devotional subject across the lines of periodicity. Medievalists and early modernists working in the burgeoning field of disability studies have shown that “disability” was an operative category in premodern texts, with subjects constituted by different or “non-standard” bodies, minds, and spirits. This roundtable proposes to extend this conversation by turning to religious experience and devotion, an important discursive field for the construction of identity by marginalized and/or minority groups.

"Fear and Anxiety in Contemporary Drama and Performance": 27th Annual CDE Conference, University of Hildesheim (Germany), 31 May to 3 June 2018

updated: 
Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - 1:17pm
The German Society for Contemporary Theatre and Drama in English (CDE)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 15, 2017

In an increasingly news-saturated world – or even, a news-controlled one – contemporary Western social and cultural discourse is preoccupied with narratives of fear and anxiety. Especially after the events of 11 September 2001, there has been a significant increase in plays and productions representing events, contexts, people, and situations that relate to these themes. Meanwhile, we are encouraged to be afeared of: the anonymous or digital other, the unknown or unexplainable (such as disappearing planes), the collapse of capitalism (and the bankers who caused it), fake news and ‘post-truths’, and the rise of the political right (or left).
