CFP: THE LITERATURE AND LANDSCAPES OF MEDIEVAL EAST ANGLIA

CFP: THE LITERATURE AND LANDSCAPES OF MEDIEVAL EAST ANGLIA
45th International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan
13-16 May 2010



This session seeks papers to discuss and analyze the literature, landscapes,
history, and places of medieval East Anglia, as well as other relevant
disciplines such as architecture, theology, ecology, geography, and sacred
and profane spaces. Paper ideas will be accepted from all areas and periods,
including Old English poetry, the outlaw sagas and other literature of the
East Anglian fens, the historical records and chronicles of the region, the
history of invasion from the European continent, female spiritual authors
such as Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe, the wool-driven economy, and
the medieval architecture and urbanization of towns like Ely, Bury St.
Edmonds, and Cambridge. Theoretical approaches of all kinds will be
considered, with special recognition given to studies that examine the
region using space and place theory, landscape and cultural studies, and
eco-critical approaches. By crossing such genre and disciplinary boundaries
this session hopes to begin envisioning the region in new ways and to reveal
new insights on the history, literature, land, and people of medieval East
Anglia.


This session is sponsored by the Saint Louis University Center for Medieval
and Renaissance Studies. Please submit a one-page abstract (for a fifteen or
twenty minute presentation) and a Participant Information Form (
http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/congress/submissions/index.html#Paper) to
Justin T. Noetzel at noetzelj@slu.edu by September 15, 2009. Please also
send an email with any relevant questions or comments. Any papers that will
not be included in this session will be forwarded to the Congress Committee
for possible inclusion in the General Sessions.



Thank you,
