CALL FOR PAPERS

42nd International Congress on Medieval Studies
Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI USA
May 10-13, 2007

Special session: "Reading the Breast: Medieval Writers and Artists."

This session focuses on secular materials, since so much work has already
been done with the breast in religious writing and art. Papers dealing
with one or more texts, visual or written as well as non-fictional secular
records, are welcome.

Presentations examining Medieval women "reading women's breast(s)" are
particularly sought; however, the session also open to papers focused on
secular texts with male or anonymous attribution.

present, BSG is regularly praised by mainstream critics as an important
drama not to be missed.

scholars, including, but not limited to:
