UPDATE: [International] Walsingham Conference and essay collection

Gary Waller

Papers and participants being sought for the Conference and Essay collection on the historical,
literary and broader cultural significance of Walsingham, the medieval pilgrimage site to the Virgin
Mary, which was been revived in the Twentieth Century. Modern accounts have generally focused on
historical origins, theology, or personal devotion: while these approaches will not be ignored,
essays are especially sought on artistic, anthropological, architectural, poetical (e g Erasmus, Byrd,
Ballads, Ralegh, Hamlet, Hopkins, Eliot, Lowell), and Walsingham's broader cultural impact and
significance including gender, sexuality, pilgrimage, cultural nostalgia, magic, goddess religion.

community among medievalists in the beginning stages of their careers,
providing exposure to an interdisciplinary forum, and showcasing the
resources of the host institutions, all at minimal cost to graduate
students.

International Medieval Congress 2008
Call for Papers: Cognitive Approaches to the Literature of the Middle Ages

The use of cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and evolutionary psychology
in literary criticism has increased exponentially in the last decade;
several monographs and essay collections on the subject have appeared, and
entire issues of journals, both in literary studies and in the cognitive
sciences, have been dedicated to the study of literature using a cognitive
approach. We are also beginning to see conferences dedicated to the
cognitive study of literature, with at least two national conferences in
2006 alone.

CFP: [Theory] Rhetoric and Contemporary Dialectical Theory (RSA 2008)

J. A. Rice

I am soliciting participants for a panel to be proposed for the 2008
Rhetoric Society of America Conference in Seattle, WA
(http://www.rhetoricsociety.org/). I invite preliminary inquiries and
proposals of 150 to 250 words that present or are informed by contemporary
recuperations of dialectical and/or specifically Hegelian theory--such as
in the work of Slavoj Zizek, Alain Badiou, and Fredric
Jameson--particularly as they relate to themes or issues in rhetorical
studies where an arguably Platonic conception of that thought predominates.
Proposals that incorporate the conference's theme ("The Responsibilities of
Rhetoric") could be especially valuable.

CFP: New Contexts, New Readings: Reception of Medieval Manuscripts
VAGANTES Sponsored Session: 43rd International Congress on Medieval
Studies, May 8â€"11, 2008

This session explores the space, or interaction, between medieval
manuscripts and their audiences. While established disciplines often treat
medieval manuscripts as exclusively textual or aesthetic documents,
bridging the gaps between traditional academic disciplines contributes to a
more productive consideration of their reception especially insofar as
light is cast upon broader, surrounding historical circumstances.
