South Atlantic Modern Language Association

In keeping with this year's conference theme ("In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts") the Medieval session this year is open for papers that deal with any of the arts of the period, from the illustrations in illuminated manuscripts, wearable art such as heraldic jewelry, and other artifacts, weapons, and implements. Papers that explore the descriptions of material culture in works such as Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, with its lush description of the Knight himself, would also be welcome. The possible topics are limitless - from celebrations of music or depictions of the holiday customs of singing and dance, ekphrasis, the employment of inanimate objects in riddles, to giving voice to inanimate objects as in The Dream of the Rood.

The study day we organized on April 21st 2015 investigated the theme "Order and Disorder" in different fields. Several participants were enthusiastic about the theme and presented an important selection of papers which covered such panels as reflections on order and disorder in the literary imagination, innovation and education, formation and information, social and political order in the contemporary world.
As a theme for an international symposium, we need to pursue the investigation into these fields but also extend it to other spheres such as art and linguistics.
