CFP: Medievalism Transformed: Texts and Territories in the Middle Ages

17th June 2011,
Bangor University

We would like to invite all postgraduate and early career students interested in the Middle Ages to ‘Medievalism Transformed’, an interdisciplinary medievalists’ conference. The conference will be held on 17th June 2011 in Bangor University. This conference welcomes delegates from all arts disciplines, including languages, history, literature, art, archaeology, palaeography and philosophy. Papers should focus on the Middle Ages or on the impact of medieval thinking in the modern period.

The theme for 2011 is Texts and Territories. Any topic within this scope will be considered, including (but not limited to):

From country to state: political ideas of land and the creation of nations
Writing journeys: pilgrimages, crusades, travel writing, romances
Visualizing the narratives: maps and illuminations
National origins: creating identity through myth, chronicles, genealogies
Representations of the landscape or nationality in art and music
Beyond the Middle Ages: the influence of medieval concepts of territory on modern thought

Abstracts of 250 words for a twenty minute paper must be submitted before April 15, 2011 to the organizers or by post to:
Medievalism Transformed, School of English, Bangor University, Main Arts Building, College Road, Bangor, Gwynedd, LL57 2DG, United Kingdom
