Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 10, 2016

This session seeks papers about electronic editions of medieval and early modern texts in both scholarship and teaching. How can such texts be best executed and then distributed? What information and features should they provide for readers? Do they replace hands-on study of manuscripts, or do they provoke more manuscript tourism? And how can such texts be used in research and also to bring textual studies into the medieval or early modern classroom? 

To submit a paper proposal for this session, or one of the many other approved PAMLA sessions, please go to: http://www.pamla.org/2016/topic-areas

Proposals are due by Friday, June 10.

The Medieval “Freak Show”: Putting the Monstrous on Display in the Middle Ages

 

People and creatures perceived as monstrous or wondrous are often put on display for profit or exploitation. At times, this exhibitionism presents itself as “education.” What has popularly been called the “freak show” achieved its height via the emergence of working class entertainments that transformed visual cultures in the nineteenth century, as exemplified in P.T. Barnum’s circus and its sideshows, but also including innovations such as the stereoscope and the panorama, which prepared the rise of cinema and, later, television.
