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.

Telling Life Stories: Ethos, Positionality, and Structures of Narrative


The reading and analysing of life stories offer multiple perspectives in understanding the self-reflexivity of authorial consciousness, the rhetorical/stylistic fashioning of ethos, and the fabulation/fictionality of narrative. Lived experiences, of the author as well as the reader, allow perception of meaning against the sedimented social, political, and cultural paradigms of the “master” or “grand narrative,” as Jean-François Lyotard puts in his seminal work, The Postmodern Condition (1979). The dialectic of human action and social reality within such narratives serves to map the interrelated progression of individuals and cultures throughout history.

Robin Hood and other medieval outlaws of fact and fiction engage in a variety of physical endeavors:  archery, swordsmanship, wrestling, quarterstaff, hunting, even cross-dressing; they also pursue and escape (or seek to escape).  When they fail to escape, their bodies may be tortured or killed in some manner. Living or dead, their bodies may also be objects, the subject of the gaze.

For far too long the story of British history and culture (of Western history generally) has presented the presence of Africans within Britain as a product of the Atlantic slave trade. Not only is this figuring of Africans as first arriving in the British Isles as enslaved people simply inaccurate as a matter of historical fact, it carries deeply troubling and problematic categorical and ontological implications through casting the very identity of Africans and their descendants first and foremost as enslaved people in the historical imagination.

In considering the Ars Memoriae, Giordano Bruno (1548-1600) envisioned a universe of many worlds, many dimensions. The  practice of remembering and forgetting had profound political, intellectual, social, religious and cultural consequences in the medieval and early modern world. Frequently, the past served as a legitimising force, helping to justify the actions of the present or to graph future perspectives. It was therefore vehemently contested, habitually revised and amended, or even exploited.  This two-day conference provides an opportunity for scholars to discuss the numerous ways in which memory practices influenced the pre-modern world.
