Thirty years ago, in her seminal book, Holy Feast and Holy Fast: the Religious Significance of Food to Medieval Women, Caroline Walker Bynum proposed that the later Middle Ages witnessed the rise of the first women’s movement in Christian history. Looking within and beyond the purview of religious devotion, this panel welcomes papers that corroborate, qualify, or critique Bynum’s claim by examining medieval representations of female agency. What constitutes female agency in late medieval literature, society and culture? To what end is it exerted? How and by whom is it celebrated and/or censured?

2nd Global Conference:
The Changing Faces of Evil
An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Saturday 9th March - Sunday 10th March 2019
Prague, Czech Republic

Evil – the things we do as well as the things that happen to us – continues to be a stubborn and destructive presence in our lives. Despite often repeated slogans of ‘never again’ and ‘lessons will be learned’, and in the face of all of the monuments, memorials, speeches and books designed to keep the ills of the past ever in our thoughts, the sheer savagery of the evils we are individually and collectively capable of performing is writ seemingly larger every day.

The most fundamental question from which this journal’s number arise is the following: is it possible to compare the specific attitude of a line of medieval mysticism thought with some aspects of contemporary thought? Which are important in particular?

A first element concerns the typical model of monastic reflection of the 12th century, in which the mystical perspective, with a strongly metaphorical language, drafts a cognitive itinerary in which the subject assimilates itself to the known object (dynamics that is illustrated with the analogy of the relationship between the lover and the loved).

Kalamazoo 2019: Wounds Visible and Invisible in Late Medieval Christianity

This session at the 2019 International Congress on Medieval Studies examines the many valences of wounds in late medieval Christianity, focusing on themes surrounding wounds and wounding both visible (corporeal and/or material) and invisible (rhetorical and allegorical). The image of the wounded body held a central place in late medieval Christian practice and material culture; the wounds of the crucified Christ were tangible reminders of his Passion and served as foci of veneration, while stigmatic saints and maimed martyrs were marked as holy by means of bodily trauma.
