This panel welcomes all proposals that address the conference theme of consumption in texts in Old and Middle English. Of particular interest are proposals that address consumerism in all forms, material or immaterial. Examples of material consumerism might include but are not limited to the presence, use, or thoughts of food, goods, bodies, or land, while examples of immaterial consumption might consider ideas, beliefs, values, labels, or practices. Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be sent to Dr. Kathleen Burt at kathleen.burt@mga.edu by no later than April 5, 2018.
