The International Anchoritic Society is seeking proposals for our Kalamazoo 2018 sessions:
[Roundtable] New Directions in Anchoritic Studies: a roundtable providing overviews of new directions in the study of vocational withdrawal, with emphasis on Q&A. This is important to establish how the field has grown and changed.
[Panel] Ecocritical responses to anchoritism: this is a topic that has not yet been widely addressed in reclusive studies; however, since anchorites are fused with their cells, and the anchoritic life is dependent upon constructions of the desert, there are rich avenues of investigation available.
I will take abstracts until Monday, September 25. Please email them directly to me, along with your PIF.
Thank you!
