CFP: "The Hidden and the Revealed in Medieval and Early


"The Hidden and the Revealed in Medieval and Early
Modern Culture."

We invite papers exploring revelation and concealment,
presence and absence in medieval and early modern
texts, images and music.

We are especially interested in papers from multiple
perspectives and disciplines that interrogate medieval
and early modern conceptions of hiddenness, revelation
and presence: How did medieval and early modern
cultures apprehend and reveal the hidden? How does
the hidden reinforce the presence of the revealed?

The keynote address will be given by Dr.Ingrid
Rowland from the University of Notre Dame at the
American Academy in Rome, author of "The Culture of
the High Renaissance: Ancients and Moderns in
Sixteenth-Century Rome" and the forthcoming "Giordano
Bruno: Philosopher/Heretic" (Farrar, Straus & Giroux.)

Presentations should be 20 minutes long.

Deadline for submission of Abstracts: May 1

Conference date: February 11, 2009
