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.

Abstracts are now being accepted for a session at the 2006 International
Medieval Congress in Kalamazoo, Michigan:
 Death in Medieval Romance
 Death--whether of the hero, a lover, parent, child, traitor, monster,
or simply foot-soldier (and the list could go on)--is a recurrent and
essential feature of romance narratives. It is, almost without
exception, necessary to plot as well as meaning. Death can imply a
final peace or the serving of justice but it might equally trigger off
revenge and more deaths; death initiates narratives and closes them
and, no matter where we turn, the texts are full of dismembered bodies,
