Submissions are invited for a session on "Anglo-Saxon Space: Spiritual,
Material, Textual" at the 41st International Congress on Medieval
Studies, 4-7 May 2006, in Kalamazoo.

In recent years, space—in all its various instantiations—has become a
fundamental category for the study of medieval discourse. Following the
enthusiastic reception of "Theorizing Anglo-Saxon Space" at the 40th
International Congress, we propose to continue these discussions in a
panel at the 41st International Congress entitled "Anglo-Saxon Space:
Spiritual, Material, Textual." This panel embraces the category of space
in multiple forms, including (but not limited to) geographic, visual,
textual, codicological, spiritual, social, emotional, philosophical, and
imaginary. In continuing this series, we hope to foster further
discussion on the wide range of issues raised at this year's Congress
and encourage interaction between scholars with various interests,
methodologies, and theoretical approaches.

Session organizers:
Martin Foys, Hood College
Jacqueline Stodnick, University of Texas-Arlington
Renee R. Trilling, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
