Call for Papers for the 41st Int'l Congress on Medieval Studies,
Kalamazoo, MI, May 4-7 2006:

"Framing, Training and Constraining: Creating an Ideal Reader in the
Later Middle Ages"

Recent meetings of the International Congress have featured panels on
diagrams and codicological devices on the one hand, and on specific
sites and modes of reading on the other. This panel aims to bring
these two strands into a productive tension. We welcome submissions
on the development and transmission of institutional reading
practices as well as papers on the way individual books, circulating
without or beyond institutional support, sought to create ideal
readers more or less on the spot.

lust); or even the Romantic period?s reception of Shakespeare. Papers
that are accepted for this panel will be presented at the 41st
International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, Michigan, 4-7
May 2006.

CFP: Abandonment and Exile in Anglo-Saxon Prose, a special session at
the 41st International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo MI

Old English literature is rich in poetry that explores solitude, from
the Wife's Lament to the Seafarer. But what about the prose?

This session seeks to explore the legal, literary, social, and
theological functions of abandonment and exile in that prose. Papers
that address law codes, penitentials, homilies, hagiography, and
other prose Anglo-Saxon texts are encouraged.

For questions or abstract submissions, please contact Erik Vorhes at
evorhes_at_gmail.com
