Working Title--Adolescent Medievalism: The Middle Ages Packaged for Children and Young Adults

As stated in our initial CFP, we are interested in abstracts on how the Middle Ages has been and is presented to young people. This focus includes not only literature written specifically for older children and adolescents but also historical fiction, textbooks, and other texts that address the Middle Ages or use medieval motifs. We have many fine abstracts but have noticed specific gaps that need filling.

CFP: Medieval and Renaissance Performance and Periodization (3/7/06; MLA '06)

"Bridging the Divide: Medieval and Renaissance Performance and
Periodization"
2006 MLA Convention
Philadelphia, December 27-30, 2006

"Periodization" has often limited the ways in which we define, examine, and
theorize performance. This panel invites papers that consider how medieval
and/or renaissance performance challenges
traditional notions of periodization. Periodization is defined broadly in
this context. Papers might suggest how performance bridges such moments as
ancient to early medieval, the High to Late Middle Ages, Medieval to
Renaissance, or pre- to post-Reformation, but papers that examine fresh
definitions, ideas, and theories of periodization are especially encouraged.
