Religion and Gender in the Early Modern Period:

This is a call for papers for a book-length collection of essays that brings
into dialogue male and female voices on the question of gender and religion
in the literature, visual arts, religious writings, and culture of the late
medieval and early modern period. We are interested in treatments of
authors who directly or indirectly engage one another in debate, but we are
also interested in bringing into dialogue by their juxtaposition in this
collection male and female voices of authors who may not necessarily have
known of each other's work but who nonetheless seem to "speak" to one
another.

Medieval Disability: The body beyond the margins (Leeds, July 10-13th 2006).
 
Disability Studies, a field of inquiry rooted in disciplines as diverse as archaeology, history, literary studies and queer theory, has increasingly called for an intensified exanination of the history of disability: how it was perceived, what constituted "able-bodiedness" in different eras, the moral ramifications of disability, the growth of the culture of pity, etc. Medievalists have been slow to answer this call, despite the period's centrality in the formation of modern identities.

Abstracts are now being accepted for a session at the 2006 International
Medieval Congress in Kalamazoo, Michigan:
 
 Death in Medieval Romance
 
 Death--whether of the hero, a lover, parent, child, traitor, monster,
or simply foot-soldier (and the list could go on)--is a recurrent and
essential feature of romance narratives. It is, almost without
exception, necessary to plot as well as meaning. Death can imply a
final peace or the serving of justice but it might equally trigger off
revenge and more deaths; death initiates narratives and closes them
and, no matter where we turn, the texts are full of dismembered bodies,

Call for Papers for the 41st Int'l Congress on Medieval Studies,
Kalamazoo, MI, May 4-7 2006:

"Framing, Training and Constraining: Creating an Ideal Reader in the
Later Middle Ages"

Recent meetings of the International Congress have featured panels on
diagrams and codicological devices on the one hand, and on specific
sites and modes of reading on the other. This panel aims to bring
these two strands into a productive tension. We welcome submissions
on the development and transmission of institutional reading
practices as well as papers on the way individual books, circulating
without or beyond institutional support, sought to create ideal
readers more or less on the spot.
