Hortulus: The Online Graduate Journal of Medieval Studies Special Call For
Papers for 2009 Issue on Monsters and Monstrosities in the Middle Ages

Hortulus: The Online Graduate Journal of Medieval Studies is a refereed
journal devoted to the literature and cultures of the medieval world.
Published electronically once a year, its mission is to present a forum in
which graduate students from around the globe may share their ideas. For
further information please visit our website at

Our upcoming issue will be devoted to representations and interpretations
of monsters and monstrosities in art, chronicles, letters, literature, and
music from the Middle Ages. We are also interested in book reviews on
foundational works that would be helpful for graduate students exploring
medieval monsters and monstrosities for the first time, such as Asa Sim
Mittman, Maps And Monsters In Medieval England, (2008) and Karin E. Olsen,
L. A. J. R. Houwen, eds., Monsters and the monstrous in medieval northwest
Europe (2001). Article submissions may address but are not limited to:

--Bestiaries and manuscript illuminations of monstrosities
--Classical and Eastern transmissions and receptions of monsters
--Desires and sins of the flesh that degrade humans into monstrosities in
allegories, commentaries, exempla, hagiography, miracle collections, and
--The Green Man, the Owl Man, the Wild Man and the Wild Woman
--Medical accounts of monstrous births and the 'monstrous' female,
intersexed, or male body
--Monsters and monstrosities in epics, exempla, fables, lais, and romances
--Monsters and monstrosities in chronicles and travel literature
--Purgatorial and demonic monsters and monstrosities in Visionary literature
--The racial 'other' as a monstrosity
--Saints as and/or versus monsters and monstrosities in vitae and legends
--Transformations of humans into animals and vice versa

The 2009 issue of Hortulus: The Online Graduate Journal of Medieval
Studies will be published in May of 2010. All graduate students are
welcome to submit their articles and book reviews or send their queries
via email to by March 1 2010.
