CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

 

FOR THE FORTIETH ANNUAL MEETING OF THE

 

MID-AMERICA MEDIEVAL ASSOCIATION

 

AT

EMPORIA STATE UNIVERSITY

SATURDAY, 17 September 2016

REGISTRATION FORM / Word /  PDF
Final Program

 

CONFERENCE THEME: OTHER WORLDS
Plenary speaker: Richard Firth Green, Humanities Distinguished Professor,
The Ohio State University

 

Papers are invited on any medieval topic, including, of course, those aligned with the conference theme. While Professor Green’s plenary address will be drawn from his recent work on the world of faerie and his forthcoming book, The Bonny Road: Traffic with the Otherworld in the Middle Ages, “Other Worlds” can be construed to encompass many other worlds indeed, spiritual, supernatural, imaginary or fanciful, social, physical, metaphysical, psychological, gendered, ethnic, geographical—with Paradise, Purgatory, Hell, the past, the future, the cloister, the college, the East, Islam, Judaism, social classes other than one’s own, lands other than one’s own, Camelot, Avalon, and faerie, itself, representing only a few of the possibilities.

 

 

Please send 250-word abstracts of papers on any medieval topic no later than 15 June 2016 to:
