Construction and Reconstruction of the Middle Ages: Memory of Delights

Taiwan Association of Classical Medieval and Renaissance Studies

One significant feature of Medieval culture is quest for salvation and justice. For example, Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights incorporates complex human emotions into its pastoral horizon, where God and Satan, good and evil compete to deny Eden as paradise. Many writers offer texts in which social and material desires decline the land of milk and honey, and memory of human goodness turns reality into ironic space in which social unrest and private disquiet challenge existence. In a way, split memory of edenic delights produces rich legacy. We invite papers to address theme of memory of delights in history, literature, religion, philosophy, and other fields, both in Medieval period and across ages.

Join us at the Central APA in Chicago in February 2018 for a unique opportunity!  For the first time, the Karl Jaspers Society of North Amercia and Gabriel Marcel Society are meeting together to view contemporary issues through the lenses of Jaspers and Marcel.  The content of the joint session is broadly construed, but with an eye toward contributions that draw from, or are indebted to, the work of Karl Jaspers and Gabriel Marcel. Differences and similarities of these two thinkers will be discussed in view of existentialism and politics. Contributions that integrate current political realities are especially encouraged, as are those that draw from distinct academic methodologies.

CFP: The Visibility of Knowledge: Spanish Culture at the Council of Trent for PAMLA Conference 2017 Honolulu, Hawaii (11/10-12/2017)

Monday, June 26, 2017

The council of Trent marked a milestone for Spanish diplomats and Churchmen. What has been often perceived as a change of paradigm in the theological and political protocols, was also a site for the creation of knowledge. As Spanish diplomats and churchmen gathered at Trent with their pairs from all the continent, medical, literary and philosophical ideas traveled hundreds of miles across borders and seas -- in the form of adaptations from antiquity, illustrated codices from the New World or revolutionary texts. This panel aims at examining the ways in which the council fostered early modern science and the liberal arts.
