"Breathing in Unbreathable Circumstances": Women of Color Feminisms in Medieval Studies (A Roundtable) - ICMS Kalamazoo 2023, Virtual Session

In Undrowned: Black Feminist Lessons from Marine Mammals, Alexis Pauline Gumbs meditatively interrogates the language of the natural sciences and its attendant racialized, gender-essentialized assumptions, and provides a model for identifying similar logics in Medieval Studies. Recent attention on the integration of Women of Color Feminisms in Medieval Studies has illuminated how these logics make the "circumstances" of such integration "unbreathable" (Gumbs 3). In this roundtable, we will engage with the possibility of Women of Color Feminisms' ability to breathe in such circumstances.

The Networks of Romance I: Transnational and Global - (In-Person Format)

Increased social mobility and technological advances in modern society, as well as the advent of postcolonial studies, have spurred scholars to investigate the ‘interconnectedness’ of the global Middle Ages, and to challenge Western-centrism. This session is open to papers that apply these critical approaches to romance texts. We welcome scholars who consider the textual representations of cross-culturalism, and of networks that transcend regional and national boundaries. Also invited are papers that examine depictions of networks from outside the medieval West. We particularly encourage participants who use decolonising methodologies.

The (Post)Medieval Imaginary
58th International Congress on Medieval Studies
May 11-13, 2023

CALL FOR PAPERS

This virtual ICMS session encourages participants to consider constructions of the medieval past in the Middle Ages and after, particularly as manifested in the interactions between the medieval(ist) literature, historiography, and/or material culture of postmedieval periods. Juxtaposing papers that engage with one or more historical periods, this session will reopen debates about the problems and possibilities of periodization while illuminating how medievalists and postmedieval scholars can productively collaborate across period boundaries.

In his influential Palimpsests: Literature in the Second Degree, Gérard Genette proposed terms to refer to the relationship among texts: intertextuality, paratextuality, metatextuality, architextuality, and hypertextuality. Connections among texts are not new to medieval scholars, as is evident on volumes about sources and analogues; yet, textual networks might be more productively explored against trade routes, religious and political invasions, and ideological impositions. How are textual transpositions, which Genette defines as “serious transformation[s]” (212), anchored in cultural clashes and exchanges?

The notion of an emergent medieval ‘gay subculture’ remains one of the most highly contested claims of John Boswell’s 1981 magnum opus Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality. In the decades since its publication, research on medieval queerness has tended to emphasise the individual over the collective whether in terms of identity, experience and as constructed discursive subjects. Despite this, landmark studies such as those by Michael Rocke, Carolyn Dinshaw and Kadin Henningsen have demonstrated some of the ways in which medieval people built networks of companionship and mutual support grounded in a shared experience of living outside of their societies’ norms of gender and sexuality.

Disability in the Global Middle Ages

updated: 
Thursday, July 14, 2022 - 5:02pm
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.

**Please note the updated deadline for submissions***

In his Timaeus, Plato hypothesizes that human beings participate in the same world-soul that animates the cosmos, a microcosm of the wider macrocosm. This analogy proved stimulating for the inhabitants of the Middle Ages and inspired them to explore the connections between the body and the wider universe, as well as the relationship between bodies. This conference likewise encourages scholars across the fields of medieval studies to examine the body, the human, and the spaces in-between.
