CFP: Knowledge/Power in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Period (South
Africa)(3/15/06; 9/6/06 -- 9/9/06)

18th Biennial Conference of the Southern Africa Society of Medieval and
Renaissance Studies, 6-9 September 2006. Venue: Mont Fleur, Stellenbosch.
Keynote speaker: Jerry Brotton, Department of English, Queen Mary College,
University of London, author of The Renaissance Bazaar: From the Silk Road
to Michelangelo (OUP, 2004), etc.
Theme: "Knowledge/Power". In an effort to facilitate a wide-ranging,
interdisciplinary conversation, we encourage scholars working in any
discipline to submit abstracts addressing this theme: especially, the
relationship between knowledge production and its material, discursive and
political contexts. In particular, we hope that participants will address
the complex and unstable processes whereby knowledge transmits and (re)
produces power, but also undermines and subverts it.
Publication: Southern African Journal of Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
