Disability in the Global Middle Ages

updated: 
Thursday, September 22, 2022 - 12:32pm
Society for the Study of Disability in the Middle Ages
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2022

Since its emergence, medieval disability studies has asked questions about the meanings of disability in the Middle Ages, the lived experiences of people with disabilities, and how scholars can apply the frameworks of disability studies to medieval texts. Although these questions have led to insightful and field-changing scholarship, much of this work centers the Western tradition. In order to explore a broader and more accurate view of disability in the global Middle Ages, we ask these same questions but with a focus on non-Western texts. This panel seeks presentations on any aspect of disability in the global Middle Ages, and we welcome submissions from across disciplines, including literature, art, history, religion, and philosophy.

Michelle M. Sauer
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2022

I am editing the Companion to Sexuality of the Medieval West with Jenny Bledsoe for Arc Humanities. The projected publication date is early 2024. This volume is intended to be an update of the classical Bullough and Brundage volume, with a more inclusive approach.

We are looking someone to write on North Africa. The deadline for submission can be somewhat negotiable, but May 2023 would be ideal. The essay should 6,000-6,500 words, and use a broad approach rather than a specific argument (e.g., handbook style). Chicago style citations as appropriate. Use of images possible as well. All essays peer reviewed.

Please contact me for further details and/or with questions.

Manuscripts and Premodern Performance: Reassessing the Evidence

Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society

Leeds International Medieval Congress

July 3-6, 2023

 

The relationship between manuscript and performance in medieval drama has long been a subject of debate. Do extant premodern play texts bear witness to actual or idealized performances? What function did early drama manuscripts serve? What role should drama manuscripts play in determining our understanding of the world of medieval performance?

The objective of this round-table session is to explore, examine, and discuss, in a variety of manners, particular literary protagonists and antagonists in world literary cultures. What seems to be their intrigue? What empowers them, or, perhaps, who do they empower? Consideration of and elaboration on points of view, themes, idiosyncrasies, heroisms, actions, styles, diction, and purpose(s) will be important to ascertain and reveal in a deliberate, inspirational, thought-provoking, as well as insightful dialogue with, hopefully, a sharing of esoteric discoveries. Contemplate how and in what ways certain protagonists and antagonists across world literatures continue to have tremendous value or a long-lasting effect in their specific roles.

International Association for Robin Hood Studies Sponsored Session(s): “Outlaw Networks” 

 

Although they sometimes work alone, outlaws in history and literature always belong to a series of networks. They exist alongside, within or outside communities, and have groups of supporters, opponents and comrades.  Outlaw stories depend for their dissemination on networks and groups, and the stories themselves exist within groups of related narratives.  This session examines some of these networks, and the individuals and groups who inhabit them. Possible topics for this session may include the following:
