CFP: New Perspectives on Gerald of Wales: Texts and Contexts (Harvard, April 10-11, 2015)

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 - 9:04pm
Harvard University

Gerald of Wales, also known as Giraldus Cambrensis or Gerald de Barri, is one of the most widely referenced authors of the twelfth century, and an important source of information for life in the insular medieval world. Much of his work, however, remains understudied, with scholarly focus usually limited to his works on Ireland and Wales, while his religious and other writings remain almost untouched. Recent scholarship on the complete manuscripts of his works by Catherine Rooney at the University of Cambridge, however, as well as recent studies on his ethnographic writings and the vernacular transmission of his work, has opened up new possibilities and renewed interest in his life and writings, including several forthcoming new editions.

More than an excellent, absurdist 2001 film set during the Bosnian War, "No Man's Land" is an idiom overused to inutility. It was a cliché long before I was born and learned what it meant or what a cliché was.
