The Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Arizona State

model.)  Possible session topics include:
 
      periodization as it affects views of the past
      revivalism
      Gothicism
      national differences
      twentieth-century views
      continuities/changes in attitudes to allegory
      Renaissance views of the Middle Ages
      medievalism/the Renaissance in the modern periods
      (Enlightenment, Romantic, Victorian, modern, post-modern, etc.)
      medieval views of the Middle Ages
      Renaissance views of the Renaissance
      continuities between the Middle Ages and Renaissance
      survival of antiquity in the Middle Ages and Renaissance
 
The conference will be held at the Radisson Mission Palms Hotel, two blocks
from the ASU campus in Tempe, a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona.  The high
temperature in the ~Valley of the Sun~ during February averages 70 degrees.
 
Proposals for sessions and detailed abstracts will be accepted beginning August
1, 1994.  The final deadline will be December 1, 1994.
