CFP-Kzoo 2014 "I just don't want to die without a few scars": Medieval Fight Clubs, Masculine Identity, and Public (Dis)ord

Friday, July 26, 2013 - 1:32pm
Center for Medieval Studies at Fordham University

Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club dramatizes group combat as a means for creating and performing masculine identity. Though composed hundreds of years after the last medieval tournament, Palahniuk's 1996 novel parallels a phenomenon similar to that governing conduct in medieval martial games. Such martial games posed a serious threat to public order, as Juliet Barker and Juliet Vale have argued, and this session builds on their work by extending analysis of medieval martial conduct to include the topic of masculine identity: how does an identity predicated by violence conflict with or bleed into the public sphere?

Hoccleve In Dialogue: Kalamazoo, May 8-11 2014

Friday, July 26, 2013 - 10:37am
International Hoccleve Society

The International Hoccleve Society seeks to promote scholarly attention to the writings of Thomas Hoccleve, especially by providing a forum for reappraisals of and innovative approaches to his work. This year's session at the International Medieval Congress at Western Michigan University seeks to re-imagine Hoccleve's place in the literary landscape of medieval England by placing him in dialogue with authors other than Chaucer. Although no one has done more to place Hoccleve in Chaucer's shadow than Hoccleve himself, such critics as Derek Pearsall, Ethan Knapp, and John Bowers have done much to complicate our understanding of Hoccleve's relationship to Chaucer's work.

Interculturalism stands at the interface between the individual, local groups, societies and cultures. These compete, conflict, co-exist and trigger reactions and responses on a number of levels including the social, the economic, the political and the personal. These are reinforced through language, the media, cultural events, social institutions and migration policies. Amidst all these dynamic and static forms of interaction, identities are built and consolidated.
