Construction and Reconstruction of the Middle Ages: Memory of Delights

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: 
Monday, June 26, 2017

This panel seek proposals dealing with ways of seeing and perceiving the world from the Middle Age to our day. Papers dealing with miraculous accounts, spectacular performances, and travel narratives that explore both allegorical and conceptual visions are welcome. From books of saints, to Iberian travelers through Europe, Asia and the Americas, this panel seeks to examine the narrative voice of those who moved either physically or mentally from one space to another while discovering, performing or even forging, a wondrous world that further complicates notions of perception, performativity and or even contemporary notions of post-truth.

Imagining Arthurian Legend in the 20th and 21st Centuries

Nostalgia for an imagined and glorious past has influenced the evolution of stories about King Arthur and his court for centuries.  According to the moods and needs of the period, new characters were added to demonstrate or question the excellence of these paragons, or to replace those who had perhaps become too human or simply gone out of style.  New plot motifs, such as the search for the grail and Lancelot’s love for Guinevere became part of the legend.
