CFP: Religion and Gender in the Early Modern Period (3/15/06; collection)

Religion and Gender in the Early Modern Period:

This is a call for papers for a book-length collection of essays that brings
into dialogue male and female voices on the question of gender and religion
in the literature, visual arts, religious writings, and culture of the late
medieval and early modern period. We are interested in treatments of
authors who directly or indirectly engage one another in debate, but we are
also interested in bringing into dialogue by their juxtaposition in this
collection male and female voices of authors who may not necessarily have
known of each other's work but who nonetheless seem to "speak" to one

CFP: Medieval Disability (UK) (9/20/05; Leeds, 7/10/06-7/13/06)

Medieval Disability: The body beyond the margins (Leeds, July 10-13th 2006).
Disability Studies, a field of inquiry rooted in disciplines as diverse as archaeology, history, literary studies and queer theory, has increasingly called for an intensified exanination of the history of disability: how it was perceived, what constituted "able-bodiedness" in different eras, the moral ramifications of disability, the growth of the culture of pity, etc. Medievalists have been slow to answer this call, despite the period's centrality in the formation of modern identities.
