Faith and Doubt in the Middle Ages and Renaissance
April 7-9, 2011
Salt Lake City, Utah

The Rocky Mountain Medieval and Renaissance Association invites panel and paper proposals on the conference theme, “Faith and Doubt in the Middle Ages and Renaissance.”

The Conference will be held at the Crystal Inn in downtown Salt Lake City, just ten minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport. Our keynote speaker will be Raymond Waddington, Professor of English at the University of California at Davis. He is the author of numerous articles, essays, and books including Aretino's Satyr, 2004; The Expulsion of the Jews (co-editor), 1994; The Age of Milton (co-editor), 1980; The Mind's Empire, 1974; and The Rhetoric of Renaissance Poetry (co-editor), 1974. He also serves as Senior Editor of the Sixteenth Century Journal.

The RMMRA seeks to provide an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of all aspects of European medieval and Renaissance studies. We welcome abstracts addressing, among other topics, the literary, historical, scientific, religious and cultural representations of faith and doubt and their various permutations in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. However, as in previous years, abstracts, papers, and sessions on all aspects of the study of the European Middle Ages and Renaissance are also welcome.

Please note that we will be hosting a special panel on academic publishing, featuring Professor Waddington, which will be of great use to advanced graduate students and junior faculty.

Proposals for panels or abstracts for individual papers should be directed to one of the conference’s co-organizers: Kimberly Johnson (kimberly_johnson@byu.edu), Ginger Smoak (ginger.smoak@utah.edu), and Michael Walton (waltonmar@aol.com). Abstracts are due January 31, 2011.
