The rights of lay Christians, clergy, and even the church itself were
accommodated in secular law in a number of ways. This session will engage
recent work on the complicated, interwoven relationships between medieval
legal and religious traditions.
The organizers invite papers from a variety of disciplines (including
literary studies, legal history, and cultural and institutional history),
and especially work which investigates specific instances of attempts by
lawmakers or clergy to enforce, expand, or curtail religious practice or
ritual.

Please send abstracts of 250-300 words along with a brief cover letter to:

CFP: Transitional Moments: Exploring Early Saints and Sanctity in Britain (9/10/05; Kalamazoo, 5/4/06-5/7/06)

 Submissions are invited for a session on
"Transitional Moments: Exploring Early Saints and Sanctity in Britain"
at the 41st International Congress on Medieval=20
Studies, 4-7 May 2006, in Kalamazoo.=20

Studies in hagiography tend to center around particular saints and their
reception in specific locations; they rarely explore the transitions of
a saint between locations and vernaculars, or from one mode of
transmission to another. However, these transitions are very often what
define saints in Anglo-Saxon and Early Middle English literature, and
for this reason are very important to elucidate in their early
manifestations.

American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies

Session Title: "Sex, Secularism and Enlightenment"

In <Formations of the Secular>, Talal Asad has described secularism as a
political ideology that took shape in the nineteenth century, based on the
concept of "the secular" that coalesced in early modernity and the
eighteenth century. What role did sex and gender play in this
conceptualization of the secular, in religious and non-religious texts and
identities? What are the sexualized components of a secular identity or
subjectivity? How do they impact the transformation of religious
identities in the period?
