Medieval Romance Society

The Medieval Romance Society still has an opening in the following session at the ICMS in Kalamazoo, May 13-16, 2010:

“Once Upon a Time:” Romance Temporalities
Critics have long acknowledged the “once upon a time” trope at work in medieval romance, but we are increasingly uneasy with the innocence and “merely” fantastic or escapist motivations assumed in its deployment. This session invites reconsiderations of what kinds of temporal systems are at work in medieval romance (and why), how romance makes use of revisionary chronologies, how it imagines its pasts and futures.

Please send an abstract and PIF to me, Rebecca Wilcox, at or Deadline is this Tuesday!
