[A]nd so I left my fairy godmother, with both her hands on her crutch stick, standing in the midst of the dimly lighted room beside the rotten bride-cake that was hidden in cobwebs” (Great Expectations, 158).

The upcoming issue of Parlour will concentrate on food and consumption culture with an emphasis on the displeasing aspects of appetites: hunger, starvation, gluttony, and pica to name a few. We invite submissions that explore a wide range of approaches to the issue’s theme and the various ways consumption or depravation becomes a “haunting” and “horrible” aspect of humanity.

Transformations: Tracing Forces of Change in the Medieval and Early Modern Period

Since Ovid’s first-century Metamorphoses, transformative experiences and transformed selves have been fundamental sites of interest in European literature. At times bewildering, marvelous, and horrid, these physical transformations can invite readers to reconsider their bodies and, because of Ovid’s moral ambiguity, to reconsider their morality and thus to reconsider themselves. The powerful idea of transformation has shaped medieval and early modern thinking, a specter heralding what is yet to come, whether feared or longed for. Transformations can be violent, often involving aggressive bodily catalysts, or even death. But other transformations are rapturous, holy epiphanies. Transformations can be sly and illusory, indiscernible yet suspected.

Mobility and Space in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe

Friday 23rd June 2017, University of Oxford

 

The application of spatial paradigms to the study of late medieval and early modern societies is now well underway. In contrast, the so-called ‘mobility turn’ has struggled to find its way from the social sciences to the humanities and, in particular, to disciplines concerned with the study of the past. This conference proposes to bring the two together by exploring how everyday mobility contributed to the shaping of late medieval and early modern spaces, and how spatial frameworks affected the movement of people in pre-modern Europe.
