  The terms "literature" and "visual art" are traditionally
  associated with high culture, but they should probably
  be uncapitalized for this conference, where we encourage
  discussion of work on the margins of these categories.
   
  Often there are presentations on book illustrations, but
  recently the trend of presentations has turned to literature/
  film crossovers (as in BRIDE AND PREDJUDICE and
  MACBOOL) and even comic books (the SPIDER-MAN:
  INDIA series). We have had presentations on novels

I am seeking submissions for an essay collection on disability in the
Middle Ages. The goals of this book are not only to broaden our
knowledge of medieval disabilities and the representations of these
disabilities but also to demonstrate the ways in which the modern field
of Disability Studies can inform the work of medievalists. As such, I
welcome essays from any field of study, but each submission should show
some awareness of current findings in Disability Studies to complement
its analysis of the medieval world. Topics may include, but are
certainly not limited to, depictions of disability in medieval
literature, historical analyses, theoretical inquiries, etc. I will be
