Mediating the Sacred and Secular in the Medieval and Early Modern period - deadline Nov. 15
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
February 20-21, 2015

The Early Modern Colloquium, a graduate interdisciplinary group at the University of Michigan, is seeking submissions for its conference on the conceptualizations of the sacred and secular during the Medieval and Early Modern periods. This conference will engage with issues of periodicity through questions of secular versus sacred authority both during and between these eras. More specifically, it will investigate particular literary representations that negotiate and mediate the divide of the sacred and the secular in Medieval and Early Modern Europe.

The Virtual Education Project

One of the most effective ways of learning is to immerse ourselves in the cultures we study; yet, we often encounter problems when these cultures are separated from us by constraints such as geography or time. When studying various people, places, events, and works, students and teachers rarely have the resources to visit each (if any) historical landmarks pertaining to their subject matter, restricting both research and teaching to textbooks and/or an amalgam of materials from various resources. The Virtual Education Project (VEP) is a large-scale pedagogical undertaking directed at providing both students and teachers with visual introductions to historical and contemporary landmarks (worldwide) relevant to the study of the humanities.

The relationship between the visual and the literary traces its origins to antiquity. In Rhetoric, Aristotle famously defines rhetoric as 'the ability to see the available means of persuasion' (I.2.1). Sight is a vital component of the human cognitive experience; neither education nor persuasion can take place without visualization. Throughout antiquity, philosophical concepts were often conveyed by artistic terminology and visual language, and all genres of Classical literature contain lengthy ekphrases.
