The Sewanee Medieval Colloquium invites papers exploring aspects of law, order, disorder and resistance in all aspects of medieval cultures. This includes legal codes, social order, orthodoxy and heterodoxy, poetic or artistic form, gender construction, racial divisions, scientific and philosophical order, the history of popular rebellion, and other ways of conceptualizing our theme.
The Sewanee Medieval Colloquium invites proposals for panel themes engaging with forms of law, order, disorder and resistance in all aspects of medieval cultures. These sub-themes address a particular aspect of our general theme, and could be the basis for either one or two panels. As a rule of thumb, panel themes should be broad enough to encourage numerous applicants, and interdisciplinary proposals are particularly encouraged.
The writing of a literary text is as a retrospective explanation of what is happening in the present and such writing is the deliberate re-creation in actual practice. This present includes social, cultural, religious and political events. The impact of immediate contemporary concerns is served to place a literary text at least partly outside the author’s control. The author responds to a given context of historical and cultural incident that limits his freedom to invent or adapt or explain.
Embodied Philosophy is an online educational portal dedicated to Indian, Chinese, and Southeast Asian philosophies and practices. We are currently in the process of building a more robust writing faculty of scholars and scholar-practitioners to educate our growing audience on the nuances of Eastern thought, practice and the intersection between these modes of praxis and the contemporary cultural milieu.
Independent one-off submissions are welcome, however EP is seeking regular monthly (or bi-monthly) contributors. Compensation packages will be offered to those who are accepted as regular writing faculty.
