Call For Papers

The Making of Thomas Hoccleve

July 6-8, 2018

University of Manitoba (Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada)

While Hoccleve’s engagements with politics and power have been explored in some detail in the last twenty-five years, recent scholars have begun to identify other, less familiar Hoccleves: curial, priestly and clergial Hoccleve, for example, as well as Hoccleve the pacifist or ascetic self, comparable to Julian of Norwich.  What other Hoccleves will hold the attention of criticism in coming decades? 

This question is the focus of the first conference to be hosted by the International Hoccleve Society. The aim of the Society and of the conference is to map and inspire future directions of research into the making of Thomas Hoccleve by bringing together established and emerging scholars. We invite papers that consider Hoccleve as a maker of texts and of manuscript books as well as papers that examine the making of his critical reputation. We seek papers that will help to re-evaluate current positions and break new ground by placing Hoccleve and his works in new cultural and theoretical contexts. Please see our website (https://hocclevesociety.org/) for a more detailed CFP. We are seeking external support to fund as much of this conference as we can—including some travel—so we are asking for both a very short proposal text and an explanation of how this conference might contribute to your on-going scholarship.

Please submit proposals for complete sessions and individual presentations by August 31, 2017, and send questions to Jenni Nuttall and David Watt at Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser..

CFP: Out of the Cloister: Lone Medievalists Making the Middle Ages Matter 
Contributions of any style and various lengths welcome!
 
Second volume of essays from The Lone Medievalist! Forthcoming soon: The Ballad of the Lone Medievalist from punctum press.
 
For many medievalists who have had the good fortune to find jobs in academe, the professional reality is that we are unlikely to be surrounded by colleagues who share our areas of expertise and interest. In most cases, a department will hire only a single medieval specialist – and may be hard-pressed to convince administrations or hiring committees to approve even that one. Those lucky few who find a tenure-track position will then spend years explaining their work to colleagues, chairs, grant committees, and eventually tenure reviewers who know little about the work we do.
 
 

The New College Conference on

Medieval & Renaissance Studies

The twenty-first biennial New College Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Studies will take place 8–10 March 2018 in Sarasota, Florida.

The program committee invites 250-word abstracts of proposed twenty-minute papers on topics in European and Mediterranean history, literature, art, music and religion from the fourth to the seventeenth centuries. Interdisciplinary work is particularly appropriate to the conference’s broad historical and disciplinary scope. Planned sessions are also welcome.

The deadline for all abstracts is 15 September 2017; for submission guidelines or to submit an abstract, please go to http://www.newcollegeconference.org/cfp.

See the attached CFP for more details.

This workshop will concentrate on East Syriac Christianity in the Mongol Empire, from the rise of Chinggis Khan (d. 1227), through the evolution of the the unified Mongol Empire that he created into four separate states—the Il-khanate in Persia (1256–1335), the Chaghatayid Khanate in Central Asia (1242–1347), the Qipchaq Khanate (Golden Horde) on the northern steppe (1256–1360) and the Yuan dynasty in Mongolia and China (1260–1368)—to the end of Mongol power in Asia and the Middle East in the late 14th century, after which East Syriac Christianity either vanished or was seriously diminished in its presence and influence.
