CFP: Textual Culture and the Medieval British Contact Zone
Panel for the 41st International Congress on Medieval Studies,
Submissions are invited for a session sponsored by the Oregon Medieval
English Literature Society on textual culture. "Textual Culture" is
defined broadly, including discussions
of book culture and its formation, the construction of books, orality,
literacy, learning, and the impact of texts on society, among others.
Interdisciplinary papers are welcomed especially.
Likewise, papers on topics from areas throughout Britain and those on
cultures which have contact and/or
conflict with Britain are encouraged.
