Modelling Emotion, Modelling Identity in Late Medieval Texts

updated: 
Tuesday, June 1, 2021 - 4:17pm
University of Düsseldorf
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 20, 2021

The critical field of emotion history has long established a link between emotions and socio-political identity. Emotion historians of the Middle Ages have analysed the ways in which emotional experience and expression shape an individual’s belonging to a specific community, and vice-versa (Rosenwein), or how emotions interact with gender regimes (Boquet). Yet emotions also have the capacity to disturb and reinvent identity categories. Approaching such categories through the prism of emotion thus allows us to account for more mobile and fluid models of identity.

Historians and archaeologists, heritage scholars and professionals routinely focus  on  the digital transduction and rendering of text and artefacts when discussing the digitization of the heritage sector. Repositories, databases, 3D artifacts, immersive environments, interactive maps, and computer games are  but some of the ways in which the past is currently reproduced and conveyed. But the implications of this digital turn for those outside the academy have yet to be fully appreciated and analyzed.  This volume aims to further this conversation.

The general conference theme “cultures of collectivity” presents some very current and relevant possibilities for the study of late antique and medieval English languages and literatures.  Any proposal that considers this theme in general will be welcome, but two foci will be of particular interest.

First, the study of book culture and literacy has been a growing field in recent years both in terms of groups of readers and groups of texts. This approach might address ideas concerning reading communities, literacy and education, book sharing, book production and combining of texts as complete or excerpted works, and use and re-use of books or texts over time.

“Cultures of Collectivity in Pre-Revolutionary French Literature

In keeping with this year’s MMLA conference theme of “Cultures of Collectivity”, this panel solicits propositions that reflect on the many ways in which the individual and the collective were conceived in pre-revolutionary society. Rather than viewing the individual and the collective as being separate facets of social existence, papers that look at the liminal movement between subjective experience and the larger political body will be of particular interest. Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:
