The title of the panel is FUN AND GAMES IN MEDIEVAL FRANCE. We are seeking to answer the following questions: Who had fun in medieval France? How? How was this fun later concretized and/or embellished in such media as the lyric poem, the lay, the romance, the historical chronicle, or the illumination? Two notes: (1.) divertissements related to courtly love and chivalric pursuits are specifically excluded, and (2.) papers in French or English are welcome.

Please submit a 250-word abstract to Paul Creamer, at The deadline for submissions is September 30, 2009.
