CFP: Edited Collection (Medieval and Golden Age Spain)

full name / name of organization: 
Belén Bistue and Anne Roberts

We invite contributions to an edited volume tentatively titled DISOBEDIENT PRACTICES: TEXTUAL MULTIPLICITY IN MEDIEVAL AND GOLDEN AGE SPAIN. We intend this volume to add to the conversation about the interplay of literary practices and forms of civil disobedience.

More specifically, this project seeks to explore the ways in which textual multiplicity threatens (state-sponsored attempts at) political unification in medieval and early modern Spain.

We seek submissions that address: 1) literary contributions made by medieval Hispano-Hebrews, -Moors, and –Christians; 2) those living on the Iberian Peninsula up through Spain's Golden Age; 3) writings that influenced the Golden Age Spanish literary arena; 4) comparisons between Golden Age Spanish authors, texts, or genres and the contemporary situation in other regions.

Interested authors should email an abstract of 500 words and a short CV to either Belén Bistue ( or Anne Roberts ( by Friday, May 25th, 2012.
