Kalamazoo 2014 CFP: Noble Dwellings and Households
Seigneurie: Society for the Study of the Nobility, Lordship, and Chivalry invites paper proposals for a session on Noble Dwellings and Households at the 49th International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, MI, May 8-11, 2014.
The session deals with the domestic side of aristocratic life, a topic which has attracted increasing attention in recent scholarship. Papers might investigate the actual structures in which nobles dwelt (or images of them in literature and art), the structure and personnel of aristocratic households, affective relations within noble families, especially as these are tied to common residence, and other related topics.
Paper proposals should include an abstract and the Congress's participant information form, which is available online at http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/congress/submissions/index.html#PIF . Please send submissions electronically by September 15 to:
