SFMS CFP for MLA 2015: Gender and Medieval Affect
How did people "feel" in the Middle-Ages? What was expected from women and men to feel, what emotions were, or were not conceivable, and, most of all, how did emotional reception or creation shape the idea of gender? Presentations examining the crossroads of literature and affect/emotions are welcome, in subjects from all the specters of national literatures and comparative literatures from the Middle-ages. Send abstracts by March 14th, 2014 to Charles-Louis Morand M├ętivier (cmorandm@uvm.edu)
