ICMS 2018 - Disability, Devotion, and Subjectivity in Medieval and Renaissance England

This panel invites trans-historical and trans-disciplinary examinations of pre-modern disability studies, focusing particularly on the construction of the devotional subject across the lines of periodicity. Medievalists and early modernists working in the burgeoning field of disability studies have shown that “disability” was an operative category in premodern texts, with subjects constituted by different or “non-standard” bodies, minds, and spirits. This roundtable proposes to extend this conversation by turning to religious experience and devotion, an important discursive field for the construction of identity by marginalized and/or minority groups.

  

 

Emotion, Affect, and Feeling in Late Medieval English Devotion (ICMS Kalamazoo 2018)

The past decade has seen a burgeoning of interest in the place of emotion in late medieval English literature and religious writing. Underlying this turn to emotion are two broader modes of thought: the history of emotions and affect theory. Both historians of the emotions and contemporary affect theorists carefully observe distinctions between the cognitive and precognitive elements of emotional experience. But only recently have late medievalists begun to investigate the distinctions between feeling, affect, and emotion in Middle English, Latin, and Anglo-French literature and devotional writing.

Whereas religious study often dwells with the theological question of how the sacred has been revealed to humanity, sociologists of religion Emile Durkheim and Max Weber preferred to ask how the sacred is made and remade within a society. For them, human activity assumes a power sometimes attributed to supernatural forces: the power to produce the sacred.
