Please find below a call for papers for IMC July 2016; 'Exploring the Medieval Imaginative Landscape'.

Session details

I am organising a session around the broad topic of 'The Medieval Imaginative Landscape', which is seeking collaborators working in any area which touches on medieval discourses about the strange or the supernatural. I would like to encourage a holistic approach to this topic, thus papers could draw upon a wide range of sources including, but not limited to: altarpieces, tapestries, tombs, archaeological finds, sagas, romances, chronicles, exempla, saints' lives etc. Participants might approach the sources from a variety of perspectives including cultural history, art history, literary analysis etc.

Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting a paper for a panel entitled "The Literary Monument and the Tre corone: Materials, Authorship, Solemnity" at NeMLA in Hartford, March 2016.

Dante, Petrarch, and Boccaccio establish a canon of literary texts in the vernacular, both by instituting continuity between their works and those of classical authors and by materially and critically formalizing a history of progressively more refined vernacular texts. This panel explores this at times inventive and mythographical approach to literary history through which the tre corone enact new notions of authorship, authoriality, and authority.

The editors invite contributions to Symbolism. An International Annual of Critical Aesthetics, an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to pursuing fundamental questions on the forms and functions of the symbolic. Symbolism publishes high-profile research on topics related to the use of figurative language, thought and signification in artistic expression and representation. While maintaining a strong literary focus, the annual also inquires into practices of the symbolic across discourses in media ranging from the cinema and painting to opera, sculpture and other arts.

Feminist Pedagogy in the Two-Year College

How do two-year college instructors put feminist theory into pedagogical practice? This roundtable discusses forms of feminist pedagogy in the community college classroom. Participants are invited to share methods and ideas of pedagogy for teaching in women and gender studies and/or feminist approaches to learning and classroom strategies across the disciplines. Papers should aim to address gender and sexuality issues, along with race and class, within and outside the rapidly transforming academic space of the two-year college.
