Accessibility in the Middle Ages

Cornell Medieval Studies Student Colloquium
contact email: 
mssc@cornell.edu

The graduate students of Cornell’s Medieval Studies Program are pleased to announce their twenty-sixth annual Student Colloquium, which will take place on Saturday, February 20th at the A.D. White House. This year’s colloquium will be focused around the concept of ‘accessibility,’ its connotations, and consequences in the medieval world. The Middle Ages are conventionally seen as static and hierarchical, marked by impermeability of social, geographic, and cultural boundaries. This conference seeks to foreground the dynamism and fluidity of the Middle Ages by focusing upon the points of access by which these borders were negotiated and blurred.

Digesting Discourses: Taste, Appetite, and Consumption #iuic16

full name / name of organization: 
Hosted by the Graduate Students of the IU Department of English
contact email: 
iugradconference@gmail.com

We are issuing a Call for Proposals for scholarly and creative submissions for an international, interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference entitled “Digesting Discourses: Taste, Appetite, and Consumption,” to be held at Indiana University—Bloomington, March 4-5, 2016. Join us for our 14th annual conference hosted by the graduate students of the IU Department of English.

Daily life is ordered by many kinds of consumption, all of which influence the way we produce and comprehend meaning within the world. “Digesting Discourses” invites scholars from the humanities, sciences, law, and public health to explore the diverse meanings of taste, appetite, and consumption across texts, methodologies, and time periods. What do metaphors of eating and digestion reveal about the materiality of knowledge? How do aesthetic and physical consumption differ? What does the critical history of material consumption reveal about patterns and power dynamics of cultural exchange? How do genre, discipline, and methodology impact the representation and study of these topics?
