CFP- TEACHING MEDIEVAL LITERATURES: PILGRIMAGE AND THE
JOURNEY

March 3-4, 2006

There are many different journeys that take place in
Medieval literatures. Some are deliberate and
intentional, such as the pilgrimage. Others are less
planned or unintentional.

Possibilities might include:
The intentional spiritual journey – pilgrimage near
and far
The unintentional journey – the wanderer, exile,
outcast
The journey for art or music – from the scop to the
troubadour
The journey in imaginative literature – from dream
vision to rite of passage
The journey in performance -- cycles and morality
plays
The (non) fictional journey – Mandeville and the world
of travel narrative
Journey for commerce or politics
Crusades as journey/pilgrimage

Deadline extended to January 20, 2006 Send abstract to
