*** Extended deadline:*** Reframing Medieval Bodies

Monday, December 4, 2017 - 12:23pm
35th Annual Meeting of the Illinois Medieval Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 8, 2017

Medievalists have long engaged in the study of the body, producing some of the most influential contributions to the “bodily turn” of the 1980s and 1990s. The multidisciplinary conference “Reframing Medieval Bodies” invites reflection on past scholarship in this area and elaboration of new approaches and methods. We invite papers from the full range of disciplines in medieval studies, exploring bodies in their physiological, symbolic, political, economic, and performative capacities. Papers that revisit "the body" in light of bioarchaeological research and the history of medicine are especially welcome, as are papers that engage recent research on disability, gender, and race.
