The Medieval Research Consortium at UC Davis is pleased to announce two
sessions for the 42nd International Congress on Medieval Studies at Western
Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI, May 10-13, 2007.

1. "Excess and Outlandishness in Late Medieval Texts" will address how
texts challenge rhetorical norms of decorum and moderation, and exceed
their boundaries--especially the boundaries from which texts deliver their
messages to a late medieval audience.

2. "Hybridized Bodies and Spaces in Medieval Literature" will examine texts
that present overlapping and competing ideological claims--such as gender
and/or nation--on medieval bodies, cities, architecture and landscapes.

CFP: Style and Re-vision in Tolkien (9/15/06; Kalamazoo, 5/10/07-5/13/07)

Style and Re-vision in Tolkien

While Edmund Wilson lampooned Tolkien's style, even more sympathetic critics
such as Burton Raffel have argued that Tolkien's style is not sufficiently
literary ,while some dismiss his writing as artless. More recently, Tom
Shippey has argued that the hybrid styles of The Lord of the Rings are
purposefully chosen for aesthetic effects. With the publication of the
History of Middle-earth, we can study the development of Tolkien's style and
analyze his writing process, both of which changed dramatically over time
and among literary works.
