Call for Papers for the 41st Int'l Congress on Medieval Studies,
Kalamazoo, MI, May 4-7 2006:

"Framing, Training and Constraining: Creating an Ideal Reader in the
Later Middle Ages"

Recent meetings of the International Congress have featured panels on
diagrams and codicological devices on the one hand, and on specific
sites and modes of reading on the other. This panel aims to bring
these two strands into a productive tension. We welcome submissions
on the development and transmission of institutional reading
practices as well as papers on the way individual books, circulating
without or beyond institutional support, sought to create ideal
readers more or less on the spot.

Please email inquiries and abstracts of up to 300 words to Katharine
Breen ( or Susie Phillips
