Call For Papers: International Congress on Medieval Studies at Western
Michigan University (May 4-7, 2006):
The UC Davis Medieval Research Consortium invites abstracts of 20-minute
papers for the following sponsored sessions:
1) A session on "Potions and Charms: Artifice and Manipulation" which
addresses the role of magical implements by exploring their manipulation
as both a rhetorical and a creative force in several medieval texts.
2) A session on "Bedroom Culture: Intimacy, Incest and Redemption" which
focuses not only on the issue of incest but raises the question of the
redemptive quality of love in medieval Romances.
