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.

This table explores the different expressions of female hagiography whose main goal is to establish a map of the varied representations of female saints in different periods of Hispanic Literature.
In the twelfth century, Hildegard of Bingen uses the life of the Magdalene with the intention of creating her own model. This tradition is intensified among women in the Middle Ages with other European women such as Catherine of Siena or Margery Kempe among many others.

"The Child in Medieval Romance I-III" (Kalamazoo 2017)

updated: 
Thursday, September 8, 2016 - 9:41am
52nd International Congress on Medieval Studies, May 11-14, 2017, Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

The medieval romance society is hosting for three sessions seeking to open up the complexities of romances’ engagement with children’s issues. How do romances problematize the relationships between children and adult society? Can children act to challenge the social order? In what sense can or should romances be understood as ‘children’s literature’? Is it possible to construct a child’s perspective? The sessions particularly invite approaches and methodologies drawn from non-traditional disciplines such as psychology, anthropology and emotions history. They aim to reconceptualise the ways in which children ‘read’ romance and forge new understandings of children’s engagement with medieval literary culture.
