Early Modern Literary Inventories - ACLA Panel, Utrecht 2017
Despair, in medieval thought, existed at the intersection of a number of discourses. It was at once a theological state defined by the rejection of divine grace; a deadly sin of slothful torpor, when folded into the category of acedia; a melancholia caused by humoral imbalances; and a type of emotional suffering endured by heartsick lovers.
Call for papers for the Chaucer MetaPage session at the International Medieval Congress, Kalamazoo, in May 2017
Beyond the Portraits: Teaching Chaucer's Tales with Visuals.
For this session, we seek papers that explore the possibilities of using visual materials to teach the Canterbury Tales, going beyond the Ellesmere portraits and similar highly familiar resources. These resources could be online or off (e.g. photos, underexplored book illustrations, ephemera). The session will emphasize the pedagogical value of these materials.
