Special Call for Papers:
47th International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan:
May 10-13, 2012

“Space and Place in the Medieval Imagination”
Sponsored by Hortulus: The Online Graduate Journal of Medieval Studies

This session welcomes scholars working on medieval representations of
spatial order, or on the sense of place in the construction of social
identities. We are seeking papers which investigate any time and place in
medieval Europe in which a strong local or regional identity was
emphasized; the papers should explore how an imagined order of space, or
the meaning of a particular place, aided in defining those identities. The
topic encourages literary scholars, historians and art historians to
consider the meaning of space in the past by situating it in its precise
historical context.

Please send an abstract of no more than 300 words, along with the
conference Participant Information Form, to Meghan Glass at
** by September 14, 2011. The Participant
Information Form can be found on the Congress website:

Participants will be contacted regardless of whether or not their proposal
has been accepted. All proposals submitted but not accepted will be sent
on to the general committee for consideration in one of the general
sessions at Kalamazoo. All proposals will additionally be considered for
special publication in Hortulus Journal. For further information:
