Construction and Reconstruction of the Middle Ages: Memory of Delights

updated: 
Wednesday, June 14, 2017 - 10:53am
Taiwan Association of Classical Medieval and Renaissance Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 14, 2017

One significant feature of Medieval culture is quest for salvation and justice. For example, Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights incorporates complex human emotions into its pastoral horizon, where God and Satan, good and evil compete to deny Eden as paradise. Many writers offer texts in which social and material desires decline the land of milk and honey, and memory of human goodness turns reality into ironic space in which social unrest and private disquiet challenge existence. In a way, split memory of edenic delights produces rich legacy. We invite papers to address theme of memory of delights in history, literature, religion, philosophy, and other fields, both in Medieval period and across ages.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

William Shakespeare’s oeuvre is comprised of multiple forms, including the play, the sonnet, and the narrative poem and spans a wide variety of genres, including comedy, tragedy, history, epic, and romance. Because of his contributions to the western canon, modern scholarship tends to focus on Shakespeare the writer. Yet, we often forget another aspect of his literary life: Shakespeare the reader. In crafting his work, Shakespeare borrows heavily from Classical, Medieval, and Renaissance literature of all genres, including poetry, epic, drama, and prose fiction, and incorporates references to mythological, religious, rhetorical and philosophical texts throughout his works.

Ecocriticism was inaugurated around 1980s as a result of environment revolution that had begun around 1960s after the publication of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. It gives importance to the relationship between human beings and nature, how are human beings affecting nature and vice versa. With time, it impacted in various other disciplines as well thereby evolving as an umbrella term. As an earth-centered approach, it intersected environment and culture and calling for collaboration between natural scientists, writers, literary critics, anthropologists, historians, and more.

This year’s MMLA Animals in Literature and Film panel invites papers engaging in tensions of “human” and “animal” found within a variety of ancient textualities related to the broad field of animal studies. In ancient Greek and Roman society, animals serve important roles, often as a medium in religion, as symbolic function in Greco-Roman mythology, and as poetic symbol in ancient oral tradition and later written literature. Often, animals are given titular roles, and they carry strong symbolic function in the narrative, whether the narrative is oral, written, or artistic.
