Reinventing the Middle Ages and the Renaissance:
Constructions of the Medieval and Early Modern Periods
February 16-18, 1995
The Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Arizona State
University invites papers for an interdisciplinary conference on the general

concept of the Middle Ages in various historical periods may be used as a
model.) Possible session topics include:
periodization as it affects views of the past
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.
