Panels now forming on topics related to all areas of myth and fairy tale and their connections to popular culture.

Game Cultures Society

50th International Medieval Congress
Kalamazoo, MI
May 15-17, 2015

From tournaments and chess to gambling and jeux-partis, medieval games were prominent in cultural imaginations across Europe. Games constituted a popular aspect of leisure in the Middle Ages, but we have only recently seen a rise in scholarly interest among medievalists.

For this session at Kalamazoo, we seek papers that explore game phenomena in the Middle Ages, including historical trends, literature, and material artifacts, as constructs with cultural significance. Papers might address any of the following topics:

Medieval Romance Kalamazoo 2015

Call for Papers: Medieval Romance Society, Kalamazoo ICMS 2015

How do we think about things? Scholarship's recent "material turn" offers an exciting new focus on things that forces us to rethink romance's well-recognised but under theorised relationship with stuff: in particular, the trappings of courtly and chivalric life (costly fabrics, rich foodstuffs, glittering jewels, shining weapons, luxury furnishings) and the thing-ness or object-ness of the texts themselves, whether books or booklets, loose leaves or other fragments, some extravagantly decorated, others poor and tatty.

Ye Nexte Generacioun: Young Scholars Look to the Next Fifty Years (A Roundtable @ Kalamazoo 2015)

In honor of the 50th Congress, this roundtable proposes to take a "state of the field" snapshot from the point of view of those who hope to see the next fifty. Scholars now starting their careers face a host of disciplinary, institutional, and technological changes. Even as fields such as queer theory and gender theory are now taking their place in the canon, they are complicated and challenged by new fields, including disability studies, temporality theory, affect theory, ecocriticism, and fan studies. Hiring practices in North America and Europe have shifted in the wake of the recession, resulting in a much-reduced job pool for those seeking tenure-track careers and a much-increased field of sessional workers.

50th International Congress on Medieval Studies
14-17 May, 2015

The proliferation of digital and digitized editions of medieval texts available online poses new questions about the forms, uses, and scholarly objectives of critical texts and textual archives. For this session at Kalamazoo, we invite scholars and editors engaged in digital text projects to discuss new work in any of the following areas: editorial theory and practice in digital environments; intellectual, technical, and institutional challenges posed by born-digital textual projects (along with proposed solutions); and interpretive work on medieval literature that is made possible by the availability of digital text corpora.

Presentations will cover various topics that offer some possible progress to a deeper and more complete understanding of the phenomenon of consensual nonmonogamy. Issues related to both nonmonogamous and monogamous relationships will be explored from an interdisciplinary perspective, in as objective and unbiased a manner as possible.

The figure of the hero underwent a renascence in meaning, visibility, and cultural cachet in the twenty-first century, with the success of the Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and World War Z franchises; the Batman, James Bond, and Marvel Cinematic Universe tent-poles; and the 24, Arrow, and Games of Thrones television series. Moreover, the hero took on new significance in other countries' cultural productions, as with the film series Krrish in India, Zebraman in Japan, and Valley of the Wolves in Turkey.
