CALL FOR PAPERS      

Volume 5 

Ceræ: An Australasian Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies invites essay submissions for Volume Five on the theme of ‘Representations and Recollections of Empire’.

In its broadest sense, empire as a term is used to describe a state or cluster of lands and states ruled by a monarch or emperor. With its implications of wide and far reaching dominion, empire as a concept also lends itself to a broad range of subject areas that may consider a number of cultural groups and historical periods, concepts of power and dominance, influence and control. Topics may include but are not limited to:

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

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.

  

 

Emotion, Affect, and Feeling in Late Medieval English Devotion (ICMS Kalamazoo 2018)

The past decade has seen a burgeoning of interest in the place of emotion in late medieval English literature and religious writing. Underlying this turn to emotion are two broader modes of thought: the history of emotions and affect theory. Both historians of the emotions and contemporary affect theorists carefully observe distinctions between the cognitive and precognitive elements of emotional experience. But only recently have late medievalists begun to investigate the distinctions between feeling, affect, and emotion in Middle English, Latin, and Anglo-French literature and devotional writing.
