Domestic spaces lay at the centre of the lives of early modern English men and women. Yet their liminality has often been under-investigated, if not underestimated, by scholars. On the one hand, households served as a hubbub of familial and filial activity (housewarmings, births, conventicles, fast/feast days and reading groups), on the other hand as sites of the foreign and fatal (burglaries, squatting, murders, possessions, and devastating fires). The house was as permeable as it was penetrable. This despite attempts to ward off or perturb would be intruders: via witches’ marks, locks, bars, fences, guard dogs, community patrols and the ‘watch’.

Medievalists have long engaged in the study of the body, producing some of the most influential contributions to the “bodily turn” of the 1980s and 1990s. The multidisciplinary conference “Reframing Medieval Bodies” invites reflection on past scholarship in this area and elaboration of new approaches and methods. We invite papers from the full range of disciplines in medieval studies, exploring bodies in their physiological, symbolic, political, economic, and performative capacities. Papers that revisit "the body" in light of bioarchaeological research and the history of medicine are especially welcome, as are papers that engage recent research on disability, gender, and race.

The conference hopes to bring together original research papers on the images of Islam and Muslims post 9/11 in literary texts and media discourses and engage meaningfully with Islam as a human and historical phenomenon where Muslims are neither victims nor threats but active participants within modern liberal structures of societies that are themselves ready to shift from an ‘an uncritical acceptance of the category of religion’ to a ‘critical interrogation of religion as a category’ to understand Islam.
