READERS, READING AND RECEPTION IN DEVOTIONAL LITERATURE AND PRACTICE
(Essay Collection)
 
We are currently soliciting proposals for essay-length studies about
readers, reading, and reception in devotional literature and practice,
with particular interest in England in the later Middle Ages. This
collection of essays draws on current scholarly interest in medieval
readers, reading, and reception that extends across such disciplinary
bounds as art history, architecture, social history, and literature
studies. We seek proposals for papers that investigate a wide variety
of approaches to and examples of devotional readers, reading or
reception in the later Middle Ages.

Seminar papers are invited that explore ways in which Christian scholars can participate in the "turn to religion" by strengthening a critical sensibility that weighs the delicate registers of belief and unbelief; by developing more vigorous theoretical paradigms that take religion seriously; and by demonstrating that Christian commitments can lead to greater interpretive clarity.

500 word abstracts to Susan M. Felch (felch_at_calvin.edu) by March 15, 2007.
