This series of sessions proposes to explore the multifarious relationships between women and the natural world in medieval literature. We invite abstracts for papers on medieval texts of any language, genre, and period across the global Middle Ages. We particularly welcome submissions from doctoral candidates, early career researchers, and independent scholars. After receiving all submissions, papers will be organised into a number of linked sessions focussing on more specific topics within the overarching theme of women and the natural world.

Topics may include, but are certainly not limited to:

Disability before disability in the medieval Icelandic sagas (ICMS, Kalamazoo 2019)

updated: 
Saturday, September 1, 2018 - 8:02pm
Háskóli Íslands; Icelandic Research Fund
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 15, 2018

This panel (2 sessions) will consider the ways in which disability is represented in medieval Icelandic literature, particularly in medieval saga writing. Panellists will engage with the concept of disability beyond the traditional bio-medical understanding of the term, exploring disability as a social phenomenon embedded in social arrangements and cultural conventions. They will seek to understand what constituted disability in medieval Icelandic society, culture, and history prior to the establishment of disability as a modern legal, bureaucratic and administrative concept.

Ecocritical essays wanted on Arthurian legend

updated: 
Friday, August 17, 2018 - 11:19am
Dr. Tim Wenzell/Virginia Union University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 15, 2018

Essays are invited from ecocritics, ecofeminists, ecopsychologists, Medievalists, and scholars for an anthology to be tentatively titled Eco D'Arthur: Green Camelot. The direction of current scholarhsip in ecocriticism focuses on science, ecology, and nature writing. More attention needs to be given to older literature, and in British literature, the medieval period. Though some attention has been given to Chaucer and to the period in general, there is relatively little ecocritical scholarship on Arthurian myth. This book- length work will analyze Arthurian myth through ecocritical/ecopsychological/ecofeminist perspectives. Indivudual essays might include:

Female Agency in the Later Middle Ages

updated: 
Thursday, August 16, 2018 - 9:47am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Thirty years ago, in her seminal book, Holy Feast and Holy Fast: the Religious Significance of Food to Medieval Women, Caroline Walker Bynum proposed that the later Middle Ages witnessed the rise of the first women’s movement in Christian history. Looking within and beyond the purview of religious devotion, this panel welcomes papers that corroborate, qualify, or critique Bynum’s claim by examining medieval representations of female agency. What constitutes female agency in late medieval literature, society and culture? To what end is it exerted? How and by whom is it celebrated and/or censured?
