1. Claire of Assisi: In cooperation with the producers of the
series of short films, Mystic Women of the Middle Ages, we will show one
of their films, 24-minutes in length, devoted to Claire of Assisi, and
present three papers on the subject of Claire and her relationship to
the anchoritic and mystic tradition. =20

=20

2. Communication with the Self/Cell: Can You Hear Me Now?: seeks to
examine the discursive and often metaphysical conflation between the
anchorite and the anchoritic cell and the means by which the anchorite
communicates with the self/Other.

=20

3. Hermit Meets Anchoress: seeks to identify and examine the
arbitrariness of the categories of 'hermit' and 'anchorite' and examine
the hazy area between the two within the history of anchoritism, both
insular and non-insular.

Papers should be no longer than twenty minutes in length.

Deadline: September 15, 2006
