CFP: New Contexts, New Readings: Reception of Medieval Manuscripts
VAGANTES Sponsored Session: 43rd International Congress on Medieval
Studies, May 8â€"11, 2008

This session explores the space, or interaction, between medieval
manuscripts and their audiences. While established disciplines often treat
medieval manuscripts as exclusively textual or aesthetic documents,
bridging the gaps between traditional academic disciplines contributes to a
more productive consideration of their reception especially insofar as
light is cast upon broader, surrounding historical circumstances.

CFP: [Medieval] Ending the Middle Ages: Tudor Constructions of the Wars of the Roses (9/1/07; Kalamazoo, 5/8-11/08)

In Tudor-era historiography, narratives concerning the period beginning
with Richard II's deposition (1399) and ending with Richard III's defeat
(1485) offer an origin myth for the Tudor dynasty, and present Henry VII's
accession as the beginning of a glorious future to which all history has
been leading. But this gesture of cohesion -- a united nation on the verge
of greatness -- paradoxically also fragments the national narrative
precisely by presenting the accession of Henry VII as a decisive break with
the past, the end of the Middle Ages.

The Poetics of Place: Region and Nation in Medieval British Literature
seeks to bring together critical voices working on the various ways in
which spatial self-conceptions shape the formation of regional and
national identities in medieval British literature. Papers sought on
topics related to geography, to region (particular location or on the
dynamics of regionalism), and to the vexed and discontinuous process of
writing Britain as a cultural unity. Send 500-word abstracts by 09/15/07
to Randy Schiff at rpschiff_at_buffalo.edu.

How do writers and artists such St. Augustine, Macrobius, Roger Bacon,
Ranulf Higden, and others describe the globe? Do religious, scientific,
cartographical, and other ideas about the world complement or contradict
each other? Do concerns of genre and audience complicate the textual or
artistic global imaginary? What critical concepts are most useful in
analyzing representations of the world: hybridity, frontier,
cosmopolitanism, utopia, insularity? Proposals are sought for papers that
address geography, travel, cartography, and imagined worlds. Email to

CFP: John Gower and Theorique
Conference: "The Age of Gower 1408-2008"
London 14-16 July, 2008

This session at the upcoming international congress on John Gower
(which coincides with the 600th anniversary of the poet's death) will
be devoted to philosophical Gower, or any aspect of Gowerian
"theorique" (e.g., social, rhetorical, humoral, alchemical,
astrological). Topics may include: How does Gower adapt or
articulate theories? Who or what exemplifies a philosopher in his
works? How can modern theory help illuminate the philosophical in
Gower? What relation obtains between theory and practice? Papers that
take up such questions in relation to any aspect of Gower's writing
are invited.

Cultures of War Research Network

Supported by the Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies
Bangor-Aberystwyth &
the Centre for Medieval & Renaissance Studies, Trinity College Dublin.

This international research network was established in 2006 and it
brings together scholars, students and independent researchers who are
focusing upon aspects of warfare and their interests range
chronologically from the Middle Ages until the end of the seventeenth
century. The network is strongly interdisciplinary in composition and
welcomes new members with an interest in researching the implications of
cultural violence and diffusing their findings in an academic forum.
