IMAGINING INQUISITION IN MEDIEVAL ENGLAND, proposal deadline 15 Jan 2010

updated: 
Friday, October 2, 2009 - 5:59am
Katie Walter, Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum

Inquisitio ('inquiry', 'investigation') in the later medieval period was one means of investigating crime in general and heresy in particular. Scholarship on medieval inquisition, ranging from Edward Peters's, Inquisition (1989), to John Arnold's Inquisition and Power (2001) and Christine Caldwell Ames's Righteous Persecution (2009), has done much to illuminate its role in continental Europe, not only in combating heresy but also in shaping individuals and communities. However, the place of inquisition in England has not been so clearly established.

As a disciplinary field still in search of its own institutional role and its specific methodologies, new media studies cannot but proceed by means of constantly updating its scholarly agenda. Rather than being concerned with issues of reconnection, however, this process seems to be characterized by a tendency to (re)articulate the field in a series of "refreshes" of its cultural page.
