We invite proposals for both papers and sessions at the 28th annual conference of the Illinois Medieval Association at DePaul University on 25-26 February 2011 on the topic "Representing the Middle Ages."

The intended meaning of a work, whether it's a text or art object or another relic of the Middle Ages, is a well-established topic of discussion across the disciplines that constitute medieval studies today. At the same time, the later forms or representations of medieval works, what a work becomes in the view of subsequent scholars or other audiences is equally an important field of study. In a sense, all medieval works are translations, literally or figuratively, re-creations and re-presentations of earlier texts, images, or experiences, transformed by the work of their original medieval authors and by subsequent post-medieval scholarship and audiences. We invite papers from across the disciplines on this topic, "Representing the Middle Ages."

For more information or to submit proposals, go to the IMA website at or contact Bill Fahrenbach, Department of English, DePaul University, at The deadline for submitting proposals is October 1, 2010
