CFP: Beholding Violence in Medieval and Early Modern (8/31/07; 2/28/08-3/1/08)

updated: 
Friday, March 9, 2007 - 3:43am
Erin Labbie

CALL FOR PAPERS

BEHOLDING VIOLENCE:
A CONFERENCE ON MEDIEVAL AND EARLY MODERN
REPRESENTATION AND CULTURE

February 28 - March 1, 2008

BOWLING GREEN STATE UNIVERSITY

Historically, the action of beholding is linked to spectatorship and
theatricality in viewing. In the scene of beholding, one is often
captivated by the image before which one is placed. The viewer reacts
to the image and this reaction has political implications. Beholding
also carries with it elements of debt, duty, and responsibility.
Often the beholder of violence is placed in a precarious position
with regard to aesthetic and ethical questions.

CFP: Illustrated Texts (4/16/07; M/MLA, 11/8/07-11/11/07)

updated: 
Friday, March 9, 2007 - 3:43am
Tammy Durant

Illustrated Texts. From the medieval illuminated manuscript to the postmodern graphic novel, text and image have enjoyed a close partnership. This session encourages papers exploring the multifaceted and complex means by which illustrations perform interpretive work in supporting, informing, challenging, or undermining textual claims. Alternatively, papers could interpret "illustrated text" broadly and consider the process of "reading” images, say, in medieval Books of Days, a cathedral's sculptural program, William Hogarth's series, cartoons or advertisements, video games, or the tattooed words comprising Shelley Jackson's Skin.

CFP: Disability and Medieval Law (6/15/07; collection)

We welcome proposals of roughly 1000 words or finished papers from any relevant discipline or from between disciplines (history, theology, various literatures, philosophy, etc). Possible topics include but are not limited to the following:
 
Medieval law codes and physical disability
