Sewanee Medieval Colloquium CFP

Philo_mediev

The Sewanee Medieval Colloquium invites proposals for panel themes engaging with the lives and afterlives of medieval cultures. These sub-themes address a particular aspect of our general theme, and could be the basis for either one or two panels. As a rule of thumb, panel themes should be broad enough to encourage numerous applicants, and interdisciplinary proposals are particularly encouraged. Possibilities might include the theologies of heaven, medieval ecologies, everyday life in the Middle Ages, the production of reliquaries, ordering of public space, and popular medievalism. If a panel theme is accepted, organizers will be responsible for selecting participants (from abstracts submitted through the website by October 26, 2018) and choosing a commenter (a well-established expert in the field) to respond to the papers at the panel session. 

Panel theme proposals should include a description/rationale of the panel theme, a list of possible commenters (organizers may serve as commenters), and the CVs of the organizers, all submitted via e-mail to medievalcolloquium@sewanee.edu.

Panel proposals are due July 27, 2018.

Commenters are generally established figures in the field with a significant record of publication; participants in the Colloquium are generally limited to holders of a Ph.D. and those currently in a Ph.D. program.

Also, we are pleased to announce that our plenary speakers will be:

Edmund King Plenary Lecture: Cynthia Hahn, Graduate Center, City University of New York
Brinley Rhys Memorial Lecture: Marjorie Curry Woods, University of Texas, Austin
